A radiant heater emits heat from the flames and embers of a fire and from the hot surfaces of the heater itself. Like the radiant heat given off by the sun, it heats objects within the room but does not directly heat the room air. A radiant heater heats people and objects directly.
Radiant heaters:

  • transfer roughly 66% of their heat by radiation, the rest by convection
  • give uneven, 'localised' heat within a room
  • have extremely hot surfaces and can be hazardous, particularly for young children and the elderly
  • are more suitable in draughty rooms or those with ceilings of 2.7 metres or higher.

Convection heaters

A convection heater heats and circulates warm air around a room. The air can be heated simply by being in contact with the hot outer surface of the heater, or by being drawn into a jacket (a 'second skin') around the firebox and then distributed through the room. Some heaters have fans to assist this process.
Convection heaters:

  • distribute roughly 66% of their heat by convection, the rest by radiation
  • have relatively cooler (100–200°C) outer surfaces
  • fill a room with warm air more quickly than radiant heaters
  • give more even temperatures within a room
  • produce warm air which can be moved from one room to another using ducts and/or fans
  • are most suitable in well insulated, draught-free rooms with moderate ceiling heights.
