CBSE - X - Chemistry - Metals and Non Metals

Non-Metals are called bad conductor of heat but Oxygen is used in burning and air is a good conductor of heat. So why are they non-metals called bad conductor of heat?

Conductors are not the materials which helps in burning, rather they are materials which conduct (pass on) electron current or flow of electrons fairly easily.
