The optically thin, advection-dominated accretion flows are thermally stable against global perturbations. In addition, they have high temperatures because of inefficient radiative cooling. They are thus promising candidates of models to explain the high energy emission of X-ray stars and AGNs. So far, models, however, take no account of the advective heat transport in determining the thermal structure of the electron system. The validly of this neglect, however, must be checked by integrating the electron energy equation globally as well as the ion energy one.
