Churchill convection stoves gently curved side panels and top plate give the Churchill a distinctively different look. A convection stove gives a better distribution of heat and can, therefore, heat a larger area faster than a standard radiant stove. The distance to combustible materials is lower than a standard radiant stove, and they are therefore more suited to timber framed buildings and open plan areas. Combustion air is controlled by adjusting the single cool touch lever which directs combustion air and allows for more complete combustion. Churchill models are design with an external air connection allowing combustion air to come from outside and not from the room.
