They are variable speed which allows the fan and compressor to run at different speeds according to the demand from the pool. On/Off heat pumps can only run at 100% or turn off. They are not variable speed. The advantage of inverter heat pumps over on/off models is:- 1. More efficient = lower running costs: When inverter heat pumps run at reduced speed their efficiency (COP - Coefficient of Performance) rises drastically. Inverter driven heat...
