The Penguin 7 convector
How do convector panels work?
Although often chosen for the look and large top plate which offers a wider surface for placing a kettle on, the convector panels makes these stoves particularly effective for heating large, well insulated rooms.
As hot air created by heat from the stove's bodywork expands, it becomes lighter than the air outside the stove and rises up inside the convector panels, exiting from the top of the panels. This is replaced by cooler heavier air drawn in at the bottom of the panels, which is in turn heated. The warmer, lighter air will fill the room while the colder, heavier air being drawn in at the bottom of the stove will create a continuous heat cycle, which gently moves air around the room.
