1 A smarter, healthier way to live.

2 Why are McGuinn Hybrid Homes different? Simple. You will be healthier and have more money to spend because we will build your hybrid home to seal out a toxic world and save energy in the process. Radiant Barrier Sheathing Low-Maintenance Vinyl Siding Engineered Systems Natural Gas Heat Insulated Thermal Envelope Programmable Thermostats Energy Star Appliances Connected Home Low-E Vinyl Windows 14-SEER Efficient AC Systems Water-Saving Plumbing Fixtures Low-VOC Paint Tankless Gas Water Heater CFL Bulbs Simple and smart.

3 Why Buy a McGuinn Hybrid Home? Buying a new home may be one of the biggest purchases you ll ever make. By choosing a Certified McGuinn Hybrid Home, you will enjoy peace of mind knowing it s been built to meet strict energy efficiency and green building guidelines. You have made the right decision for your wallet, for your family, for your health, and for the environment...while enjoying these important benefits: 1. Enhanced Performance In McGuinn Hybrid Homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment. 2. Lower Utility Bills By using less energy for lighting, heating, cooling, and water heating, McGuinn Hybrid Homes deliver substantial savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost. 3. Environmental Protection The energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, McGuinn Hybrid Homes help prevent air pollution an added benefit for today s environmentally-conscious consumer looking for energy-efficient and green choices. On average you ll save... Over $100 each month in utility costs, and over $100 each month in home maintenance costs More value. u More home. u More features.

4 Radiant Barrier Sheathing Radiant barrier sheathing is installed in your attic - primarily to reduce summer heat gain and reduce cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. Reduces radiant heat transfer through the roof by up to 97% Reduces attic temperatures by up to 30ºF Increases the efficiency of attic duct work Prolongs life of heating/air conditioning system Increases comfort level significantly Reduces cooling costs and makes your insulation more effective Low-Maintenance Vinyl Siding Vinyl siding is great for a number of reasons: Vinyl siding is made for maximum beauty with minimum maintenance. It never requires paint, which saves you time and money, in addition to keeping harmful chemicals out of the environment and away from your home Leaves a smaller environmental footprint and is built to last a lifetime, giving it just the kind of durability which is key to green building Radiant Barrier Sheathing Low-Maintenance Vinyl Siding Engineered Systems It is what you don t see that matters the most! That is why the heating and cooling systems, floor trusses, roof trusses, and stair assemblies are engineered for quality in every McGuinn Hybrid Home. The process is also environmentally responsible because so much less waste is created since the components of each home are precisely planned and manufactured. Trusses help save our forests. Engineered components use less material, yet are often twice as strong Because they are built strictly from shorter lengths of 2x4 lumber, they are generally a lot less expensive than the alternative You can have just about any shape custom-built, and this allows interesting features like cathedral ceilings at low cost You can span a large distance with a truss and the truss transmits all of the weight to the exterior walls. Therefore, none of the interior walls are load-bearing, so they can go anywhere and are easily moved later Floor Trusses are stronger and quieter, no more squeaks! Engineered Systems

5 Natural Gas Heat Why is gas heat better? Natural gas is a renewable resource Natural gas furnaces deliver air at a comfortable 120º vs. 95º from an electric furnace Clean-burning natural gas is a much better environmental choice than electricity The delivery of natural gas is 90 percent efficient, compared to only 27 percent for electricity Natural Gas Heat Insulated Thermal Envelope Insulation All McGuinn Hybrid Homes have high R-value wall insulation and ceiling insulation. The insulating factor of any given type of insulation is measured by the R-value. The primary reason for insulation is to help retain cold in the summer and heat in the winter. Insulation also helps with soundproofing a home. However, insulation only one part of a complete system. House Wrap Our McGuinn Hybrid Homes are completely covered with space-age house wrap. This synthetic material acts as a water resistant barrier to help keep your house dry and protects the home against outside air. This reduces the energy costs and saves the homeowner money because homes stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter and dry all year round. Air Sealant Our McGuinn Hybrid Homes have spray sealant applied to all unsealed areas around window and door frames, exterior framing, attic stairs, knee walls, and exterior utility penetrations. In addition, mastic and caulk is applied to all HVAC connections. This creates protective thermal barrier against the outside elements. Programmable Thermostats Programmable thermostats save energy and money on utility bills by: Allowing residents to set home temperatures according to various different factors Programmable thermostats supply personal comfort through pre-set temperature levels and are generally more convenient and accurate than manual thermostats Insulated Thermal Envelope Programmable Thermostats Programmable thermostats are a plus for the environmentally conscious because they contain no mercury and are eco-friendly. Using less energy helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy production

6 Energy Star Appliances Today s major appliances don t hog energy the way older models do because they must meet federal energy efficiency standards. These standards have been tightened over the years, so any new appliance you buy today has to use less energy than the model you re replacing. For instance, if you buy one of today s most energy-efficient refrigerators, it will use less than half the energy of a model that s 12 years old or older. Energy Star Appliances Look for the Energy Star label. Energy Star models are the most energy efficient in any product category TankUse the Energy Guide label. All new appliances must carry the Energy Guide label, either on the appliance itself or on the packaging Connected Home Every McGuinn Hybrid Home comes pre-wired for almost any connected option you can think of. The only limit is your imagination. These are just some of the smart-device controlled options available: Remote thermostat control USB charging outlets Garage door control Door lock control Remote light control Home audio control Security cameras inside and outside Lots of other options available Connected Home

7 Low-E Vinyl Windows Low-emissive (Low-E) windows treated with Low-E coatings are proven to reduce energy consumption, decrease fading of fabrics, and increase overall comfort in your home. Our McGuinn Hybrid Homes utilize Low-E glass in all windows and doors. The glass helps reflect heat and may reduce the energy loss by as much as 30% 50%. This protection reduces energy costs by preventing sunlight from heating up your home. Low-E Vinyl Windows Vinyl frames are simply a better choice than other materials. It s certainly superior to aluminum or wood windows and doors which readily conducts heat and cold making them far less energy efficient. Low-E vinyl windows are the best choice for all these reasons: Low-E glass benefits Great insulating value Strength and durability Beauty of wood without the hassle of maintaining it Excellent resistance to rotting, corrosion, salt air, termites and air pollutants Low-maintenance Efficient AC Systems Up to half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. How does a McGuiin Hybrid Home keep costs down? Our homes feature high-efficiency 14-SEER heating and cooling systems Every home is equipped with an easy to set programmable thermostat Duct seams and connections are sealed with mastic or metal-backed foil tape to prevent leaks. Water Saving Plumbing Fixtures Plumbing fixtures that significantly reduce the amount of water released per use are labeled low-flow or low-flush. These fixtures use just enough water to be effective, saving excess, clean, drinking water that usually goes down the drain. 14-SEER Efficient AC Systems Water-Saving Plumbing Fixtures How do they work? Toilets account for about 40% of water use in a home with older models using up to 6 gallons per flush. McGuinn Hybrid Homes use low-flush toilets that only use 1.28 gallons per flush (GPF) Our shower heads use 20% - 40% less water than older shower heads Our lavatory faucets use up to 32% less water than regular faucets All perform as well or better than their less-efficient counterparts

8 Low-VOC Paint Paints and finishes release low-level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variey of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which, until recently, were vital to their performance. What is different about the paint used in a McGuinn Hybrid Home? These new paints are more durable In recent years, Low-VOC paint has become more cost-effective Low-VOC paint is less harmful to human and environmental health Low-VOC Paint Tankless Gas Water Heater (where gas is available) By heating water only when you need it, ENERGY STAR certified Tankless water heaters save a typical family hundreds of dollars over the lifetime of the water heater on gas bills compared to a standard storage model. Just some of the benefits are: Tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of 20 years, much longer than any conventional tank-type water heater. And with a tankless model, the risk of tank leaks and water damage is a thing of the past Models designed for outdoor installation free up even more space and add versatility to your basement, garage, or utility room Tankless water heaters provide a continuous flow of hot water, so there s no need to suffer through a cold shower if you re the last one out of bed CFL Bulbs Lighting products that have earned the ENERGY STAR rating deliver exceptional features, while using less energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect the environment. CFL Light Bulbs: Save money in electricity costs Lasts 10 to 25 times longer Meets strict performance requirements that are tested and certified by a third party Uses about 75% less energy than a traditional incandescent bulb Tankless Gas Water Heater CFL Bulbs Produces about 75% less heat, so it s safer to operate and can cut energy costs associated with home cooling
