Cut your energy use at home by 50 to 90 percent using a process called a Deep Energy Retrofit (DER). Jeff Wilson, host from HGTV and the DIY Network, tells the story of his family's DER of their 70-year-old home to slash its energy use by 85 percent, while making it a more comfortable and healthier place to live. DERs can be accomplished in any climate to benefit homeowners and to solve the wider problems of our economy, environment and energy security.
Jeff Wilson's 25 years in the construction industry has spanned the roles of carpenter, remodeler, and home improvement host on HGTV and the DIY Network. On TV, Wilson has told stories of historic restorations (Restore America, HGTV) and taught people how to build everything from decks (Build-a-Deck, DIY Network) to fences (Build-a-Fence, DIY Network) to handmade musical instruments (Hand Made Music, DIY Network). Wilson lives with his wife and two daughters in a perpetually half-renovated home in a small college town in Ohio.
