Ok,聽so we were never able to change your mind in the first place?

A simple google search (or DuckDuckGo, Bing, Yahoo Search (is that still a thing?) or whatever search engine you prefer) would tell you the difference between convection and radiation, and should change your mind.聽

Ill give you a second to google what a convector's full name is called.聽

Guys, convection is the transfer of heat by movement of fluids (liquid or gas) while radiation is the heat transfer by electromagnetic聽RADIATION. The fundamental way that "radiators" work is by convection of heat from the processing unit聽(or engine in vehicles) to the聽core of the radiator using liquids聽where heat is again convected away from the radiator core to the atmosphere (u search engine experts breathe lol) using air.

So the function of radiators is to transfer heat by convection -聽ergo, radiators actually work as convectors.

I thought you wanted us to change your mind and not you wanting to change ours?

So back to your point, let鈥檚 talk about heaters (New idea for Alec on Technology Connections here!!!!).

Convection heaters work on drawing cold air up from the bottom by heating the air in the unit and causing it to rise out the top. These are typically electric but are not fan assisted. Just a heating element in a protective metal cage.聽

Radiators don鈥檛 draw air up and through over a heating element, they are typically a large tank filled with oil or water heated elsewhere in the building or unit for freestanding ones.

These have a very large surface area which becomes hot in its entirety, the liquid聽typically moves from the bottom in one side to the top on the other side before returning to be heated again for installed units(this is often pumped and the system kept at a pressure rather than relying on convection).聽

Freestanding ones probably work on convention internally but it is radiant heat from all over the surface that heats the room.聽

Is that enough to change your mind?

I did want you to change my mind. It's just that you couldn't yet. (didn't post this topic in hostility聽btw)

And I didn't say radiators were "convection heaters". I merely implied they act as convectors because they primarily use thermal convection for heat dissipation rather than thermal聽radiation, even though they're called radiators.

But yeah, technically Convection is not fan assisted and thanks for pointing that out. The proper term for this phenomenon is Forced Convection.

And forced convection doesn't necessarily have to loop a volume聽of聽air up and down for cooling

So my point still stands though聽馃槈

it crossed my mind. then i thought it'd belong in general discussion since it was a matter of "technical" terms
