What We Liked

  • Low Ceiling Design
    The Westinghouse 7861500 has been designed so it sits flush to the ceiling. This makes it perfect for rooms in the home that are not very high such as a child’s bedroom.
  • Beautiful and Contemporary Look
    Finished in brushed nickel and with frosted glass light shades, this fan will add a touch of class to any room. It also has 5 reversible blades for increased versatility in design.
  • Cool or Warm Air
    Cleverly, Westinghouse has included a reversible switch. This means cool air will be circulated in summer, and in winter you can reverse the switch so the warm air above reaches the floor. The consumer also benefits from 3 fan speeds.
  • Safe to Use
    The 7861500 is UL listed so the consumer can have peace of mind this fan is very safe to use.

What We Didn't Like

  • Noise Levels
    When the 7861500 ceiling fan is in operation, it will make a humming noise, which for some can be a little annoying.
  • Delicate Light Shades
    The light shades are made of frosted glass, and it has been noted they do break fairly easily. However, if care is taken when installing, this shouldn’t be a problem.


Westinghouse has done a fantastic job with the overall design on the 7861500 Contempra Trio. The finish is excellent and it looks far more expensive than it actually is. When it comes to the technology used, the best feature is the reversible switch. This means the fan will not sit idle during the winter months and will help to keep warm air circulating which aids in energy efficiency. This fan will not disappoint.
