Pros & Cons
Westinghouse 78108 Petite 6-Blade 30-Inch 3-Speed Hugger-Style Ceiling Fan is a stylish compact fan for smaller-size rooms up to 80 square feet. It is available in white with reversible white/whitewashed pine blades. It is also available in antique brass with reversible walnut/oak blades. The blades are constructed of MDF and have an 18-degree pitch. It measures 30 inches in diameter by 12 inches tall. This petite ceiling fan includes a single light fixture with light-diffusing opal mushroom glass that operates on one candelabra-base. A 12-inch lead wire, light kit, matching pull chain, and installation hardware are included, and the unit can be adapted for use with a dimmer switch if desired. It features a whisper-quiet motor with a three-speed reversible switch that allows for customizing air movement.
It allows for maximum energy savings as well as comfort throughout the four seasons. The reversible switch allows the ceiling fans to be used during cool or warm weather. In the summer, you can keep your home cool by running your ceiling fan counterclockwise. In the winter, you can run your ceiling fan clockwise to re-circulate warm air from the ceiling and eliminate cold spots and drafts. Users have mentioned that the Westinghouse petite generates the ample air flow in small kitchen and bedroom or guest rooms.
Some reviewers have pointed out that the light fixture is a single bulb that you cannot get too much light out , or replace it with a brighter CFL because the glass is too small and it is candelabra style bulb base.
All in all, this 30-inch ceiling fan accommodates low ceilings and smaller size rooms perfectly. The air flow with the tiny blades works well and moves a lot of air for its size.

The motor itself, even completely isolated from any mounting hardware has a serious hum and rattle that's worst on the lowest speed • Fixture wasn't packaged well at all • Some buyers had to get the fan replaced
