We show how previous works (Fuhrmann et al., van 't Veer-Menneret &
Megessier) demonstrate the efficiency of the use of Balmer line profiles for
effective temperature determination. In agreement with them, we insist
on the physical interest of this method based on the behaviour of these
lines with the variations of the parameters involved in the treatment
of the convective transport. The comparison between Fuhrmann's results and
ours, independently obtained, exhibits a quite good agreement. We show new
results of effective temperature, gravity and metallicities for a few of
our programme stars, ranging from solar to overabundant metallicities.
