    Question:

    What is the difference between convection heaters and regular wood stoves and which is the most expensive of the 2?



    Answer:

    A convection stove has an extra wall around it, which tends to help circulate air throughout the home. A radiant stove (as opposed to convection) would usually be a single wall of cast iron, steel, stone or a combination of the above.

    In reality, most stoves perform both functions. Neither type of stove is more expensive than the other
