(kŏn-vek'tive hēt)
A rise in temperature conveyed from one structure or appliance to another in which the warmer affects the cooler by convection.

convective heat

The flow of heat to an object or part of the body by passage of heated particles, gas, or liquid from the heat source to the colder body.
