I am planning to have a generator installed at my house.  The preferred location has the exhaust side of the generator greater than the required 5 feet from a window, door or vent.  However, several installers claim that NFPA code requires the entire chassis of the generator to be at least 5 feet from these openings.  This makes a huge burden on placement.  I reviewed the NFPA 110 handbook and couldn't find any reference to this.  What is the actual requirement?#generator placement
