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
and
Proposal #2 - Proposed a Peerless WBV/WV-04

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

Questions:

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.

Steam Boiler

I do next to no steam but from what I know of the EC/ECT & WV/WBV series Peerless boilers, I'd prefer the EC for steam. The price difference is likely about half boiler & half labor.
