Convection and radiant stove
The convection stove is double-walled, where cold air is sucked in the bottom of the fireplace stove between the combustion chamber wall and the outer wall of the stove. Here, the the air is heated and rises up. This results in natural air circulation which can heat larger spaces. The heat is more even and the outside temperature of the stove usually does not reach high values as in the case of radiant stoves. Radiant heating occurs in places where the stove does not have a second wall, for example the area of glass.
The cold air is sucked in in the lower section of the stove, warmed up between the stove walls and blowing out warm in the upper area.
Radiant fireplace stoves do not have a double wall and do not allow air circulation. Radiant heat is transferred over the entire surface of the stove through the space around the stove (furniture and other objects), where the temperature increases. The stove is heated quickly and its surface reaches higher temperatures than a convection stove. Radiant fireplace stoves are made into rooms with high ceilings and their main advantage is fast heat transfer into the room.
