Generator Installation Review

I have been contracted with APS for several years and have always received prompt and courteous service. APS contacts me prior to coming to the house to perform routine (4 times/year) maintenance on the house generator and the technician always leaves a maintenance visit report (as I requested). There are few companies that are able to furnish you with an exact date and time for service or repair. APS gives you a specific date and time, not a four-hour window. When you call or email a representative at APS you actually get to speak to a live person during the call or in response to you email. After you pay your bill , you receive printed receipt, either via mail or email. APS has maintained my full-house generator in good condition so that I feel confident it will be functioning, if and when there is a power failure. There is satisfaction in knowing that there is a vendor who is reliable .

Installation Requirements*:

Boca Raton is comprised of two jurisdictions with two separate building departments. To find out what municipality your residence is located you can complete a property search on the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser website here: http://www.pbcgov.com/papa/.

City of Boca Raton

Generator Setbacks: The City of Boca Raton does not have any specific setback requirements and generators can be installed right up to the property line. However, it is a good idea to leave two to three feet for screening and equipment servicing.

Generator Distance to Building & Openings: The City of Boca Raton follows the NFPA 37 Installation guidelines for combustion engines located outdoors which requires generators to be located 5’ to any combustible materials and openings. This requirement is measured from any point on the generator to the closest opening.

Noise Requirements: Generators installed within Unincorporated Palm Beach Countycan be no louder than 75 decibels when measured at the property line. Technically, this requirement does not apply during times of emergency such as power outages. However, it does apply during the weekly exercise cycle. Assurance Power Systems specializes in designing generator packages that comply with these noise requirements.

Generator Screening: Generators are required to be screened from view in Boca Raton by either landscaping, fencing or walls. Assurance Power Systems uses Green Arboricola as our standard screening materials included in every installation.

Propane Tank Setbacks & Distance to Buildings: Underground propane tanks are required to be 10’ to buildings and sources of ignition per the NFPA 54. The City of Boca Raton allows underground propane tanks to be installed right up to the property line so long as they meet the other requirements.
