Your hot blast is a double heater. That is, it is both a radiant stove and a convective stove at the same time. The second opening at the top is to allow heated air to flow out of the top of the stove. Cold air is brought in near the bottom of the stove and is heated in a tube in the back. These work very well and increase the overall capacity of the stove by quite a bit.
