Jeff Wilson

  • Host, HGTV and DIY Network
  • Author, "The Greened House Effect"

In this talk, author Jeff Wilson will discuss Deep Energy Retrofits (DER) to homes, which not only slash energy bills by 50 percent or more, but can make homes more beautiful, comfortable, and healthier places to live. DERs offer a foundation for solutions to the wider problems of our economy, environment, and energy security. Wilson will tell the story of his family’s DER, gives tips for DERs in different climate regions, and make the case for DERs at a construction level.

Jeff Wilson’s 25 years in the construction industry have spanned roles as diverse as carpenter, pickup truck contractor, and television host for nearly 200 episodes on HGTV and the DIY networks. His book, "The Greened House Effect," chronicles Wilson as he deep energy retrofits his 70-year-old home.
