Peerless boilers - WBV/WV-04 vs. EC/ECT-03

I recently received several proposals for Steam boiler installations.

The two finalists both proposed Peerless models.

Proposal #1 - Proposed a Peerless EC/ECT-03
Proposal #2 - Proposed a Peerless WBV/WV-04

#2s estimate was considerably less $1,000.


What is the advantage of one model over the other?

If #1 does have advantages over #2 is the difference in cost justifiable or is it most likely in the labor?

Both installers are comparable as for as reputability and knowledge in our area.

Thanks for any help in advance.

The EC holds more water. this is important on steam systems. Newer high efficiency steam boilers with low water content. Tend to produce steam too quick, and short cycle. Causing high heating bills. And very uneven heating of the house.

While there is a price difference between the 2 boilers. Good chance most of the install price difference is in the install its self.
A poor install of a steam boiler, has far reaching repercussions.
