3U applies for commercial property rights for CO2-neutral heating system

  • Market launch of the innovative comprehensive system planned for mid-2023
  • Significant time savings for do-it-yourselfers and craftsmen
  • Contribution to the achievement of climate targets

Marburg, 21 March 2023 – PELIA Gebäudesysteme GmbH, a subsidiary of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN DE0005167902), recently filed a patent application with the German Patent and Trademark Office for an innovative complete system it has developed for CO2-neutral heating of residential buildings. The publication of the patent application and the examination procedure for the granting of a patent are still pending. Nevertheless, the market launch is already planned for mid-2023.

The core element of the heating system is a heat pump. All hydraulic modules and control units required for its operation are installed in a fixed location, hydraulically connected, and electrically prewired. The use of the pre-assembled complete system therefore reduces the installation time of the heating system to a fraction of the previous connection time. The time and effort required for planning, configuration and procurement by building owners and tradesmen can also be drastically reduced.

“With the introduction of the central heating systems, we are making a further contribution to reducing CO2 emissions and dependence on gas imports,” emphasises Uwe Knoke, Director of Strategy and Business Development at 3U HOLDING AG. “But it should also prove to be a significant driver for the planned rapid and sustainable growth in sales and earnings in our SHAC segment. We expect demand to be good and tend to increase further and have already secured market entry by stocking components and parts. The scope and pace of further market penetration will depend largely on the industry’s ability to deliver, and our traditionally good relationships with manufacturers should have a supportive effect.”
