Popular Series Returns to Help Deserving Families Rebuild

ATLANTA – Rheem will partner with HGTV’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as the air and water heating product provider for the upcoming 2020 season. The series will premiere February 16 at 9:00 p.m. EST and spotlight local heroes who give back to their communities despite personal challenges. HGTV produced the series (formerly on ABC) and will air 10 episodes, each with a custom home renovation for a deserving family.

Each renovation incorporates design, technology and customization to create an environment that offers positive and life-changing impact for the homeowner and their families. Designers, builders, plumbers and volunteers worked around-the-clock to complete construction of each home within four days. ABC’s “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson hosts the series. Home design experts and celebrity guests, including former “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” host Ty Pennington, will appear throughout the season.

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is a beloved show that helps families rebuild and thrive,” said John Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President of Operations for Rheem. “We want to honor these families and provide innovative HVAC and water heater products to fit their individual needs, keep costs down and minimize their carbon footprint.”

The 2020 season will spotlight smart home advancements, sustainability and responsive design. Rheem’s line of connected HVAC and water heaters are among the most efficient on the market and provide advanced protection, savings and convenience. With a single app on their phone or through their new EcoNet® Smart Thermostat, each family will be able to control settings, view product alerts and maintenance reminders, and monitor energy and water usage to manage consumption.
