Why so expensive for the install?

Just got 2 quotes from 2 different plumbers to install new furnace and hot water tank.

Quote 1: Buderus GB142/45 gas wall hung condensing boiler
Super-Stor SSU 60 indirect water heater
$13,200 installed

Quote 2: Ray condensing cast iron gas FHW boiler
Superstor Ultra 45 Gallon Indirect Water System
$19,065 installed

Huh? Does it really cost this much to install this equipment. It seems like the furnace & hot water tank cost around $6k total. What's the other $$$ for?

equipment cost 1/2 labor and expenses the other 1/2.
costs money in insurances, training, keeping trucks
and installers on the road.

best of luck
