Window orientation

Each window entered into a dwelling has an associated orientation. AccuRate Sustainability and BERSPro software use 8 cardinal points to describe the orientation of the windows, while FirstRate5 users 16 cardinal points. Consequently, the minor cardinal points (NNE, ENE, ESE, SSE, SSW, WSW, WNW and NNW) data that is displayed in the dashboards only comes from FirstRate5 generated certificates.
