Non-luminous flame should be used for heating in the because the flame is steady and produce little or no soot.

Another reason of using non-luminous flame because the flame of non-luminous is blue, and not visible unlike the luminous flame which is yellow in colour and visible.

A non-luminous flame is strong and steady.-A non-luminous flame is very hot while a luminous flame is not too hot.
