Thermocapillary convection in a cavity is considered. It is shown that when the cavity is heated through its sides, reduction of heat transfer across the interface leads to an increase of the interface deformation. When the same cavity is heated through the interface, similar reduction of heat transfer across the interface results in diminished convection and reduced interface deformation.
