What Our Customers Are Saying.
Lynn – gas fireplace installation
We are thrilled with our new gas fireplace! George was so helpful in guiding us to our purchase, and the showroom was clean and filled with many samples to choose from. The installation went flawlessly and Keith and Ben treated our home as if it were their own. A totally satisfactory experience from start to finish and I only wish we had done it sooner! I would highly recommend Best Fire and their staff to anyone; in fact we already have! If you are in the market for anything fireplace related, this is the place to go!! Thanks for the wonderful service!
Charlie – Gas fireplace
We were looking for a fireplace for our family room and our journey started with a visit to Best Fire. The sales consultant was very helpful and knowledgeable, but more importantly he listened to our thoughts and wishes and assisted in reviewing the various options. No high pressure sale, just easy discussion of the pros and cons of each type gas fireplace.
Best Fire were very thorough in the preplanning and onsite inspection and measuring.
On installation day, they were outstanding professionals, that treated our home as if it were their own. They protected every area they came in contact with to be sure they left no residue or dust. (The install took place in December 2019, just found time now to reflect on the project). We were truly impressed with how neat they were as well as how precise in fit and finish.
Best Fire sells the same brands as other companies but if you are looking for a professional installation and great workmanship, you should give them a call.
We certainly are glad we did, we couldn’t be happier with the installation, the final look and the beauty it has added to our home.
Jerry – Gas fireplace cleaning
A gentleman named Seth came to our house to clean our fireplace. He covered around the fireplace as he cleaned it and when he left, the area was as good as when he came. He answered all our questions. My wife and I were very happy with him.
Rachael – New gas fireplace
We put in a new gas insert and wow, what an amazing job Best Fire did. From the very beginning looking at the fireplaces in the show room to scheduling and install, Best Fire was more than professional and did a wonderful job. The owner and sales rep were so gracious and provided us all the support we needed to move forward. When the guys showed up on install day, they were professional and got the job done!! We are so happy!! Thank you soo much!
Lyle – fireplace insert service call
Seth Ullman was here to convert my Heatilator brand insert from propane to natural gas. We could not have been
happier with the results!! Seth recognized a missing part, ordered it and returned within ten days to complete the job.
He left with the flame and embers looking much better than it had for the two years prior. As consumers we appreciated
your fairness to us as a company and the extra care taken by Seth to make our fire and fire experience much more enjoyable.
John – New gas Fireplace
We met with Wayne at the Troy showroom and he was so helpful.
He met with my contractor and set up the install which went so smooth.
His installers were in and out in less than 1 day.
Fantastic people to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone.
This review is a little late but well deserved.
Thanks again to Wayne and his staff.
We enjoy our family room downstairs SOOOOO much.
John and Chris
BRIAN – Insert cleaning/rehab
Scheduled a cleaning for a fireplace insert not used since 2006. Tim & Kevin arrived to discover water/rust damage that disabled the unit. Took pieces back to the shop for rehab and returned with necessary parts to get it working. Thing looks brand new. The skill and professionalism of Tim & Kevin were most impressive. The ‘Best’ in Best Buy is well deserved. Thank you!
Anthony – Great shopping experience
A big thank you to the Best Fire team for all their help with my pellet grill purchase. Friendly helpful staff that took the time to answer all my questions. So far, I’m loving my Green Mountain pellet grill and very happy with my decision to purchase it from Best Fire.
Jim & Connie – GREAT JOB!! refacing fireplace door
Tim, in your showroom and then later at our home, has a vast knowledge of the available products and made valuable and informative recommendations for our new fireplace refacing based on our requirements. For the install, Keith and his colleague did a wonderful job installing our new fireplace door and log set. Keith was very informative when teaching me about the functionality of our new set and also had important recommendations about its maintenance. These two installers were super clean! They immediately laid down drop cloths when they arrived and cleaned every last piece of dust before they left. Very cordial and also professional. Keith left his contact info for future concerns or questions. Excellent experience. Thanks Best Fire from start to finish!!
Ed – Comments on a Showroom Visit
We are in the process of replacing our chimney and fireplace at our home in Pittsfield, MA. We have contracted with a local mason to do the project starting in early March. The mason will build any type of fireplace we want. Our difficulty was that we were unfamiliar with the design and product options available and didn’t feel confident in making the design decisions the mason needs. We did an internet search for help and found the Best Fire Store in Albany.
We setup via telephone an informal appointment to meet with Tim Fleming at the Best Fire showroom on Friday, February, 23, 2018. We arrived at the showroom about 1:00 PM and were immediately impressed with Tim’s friendliness and good humor. He patiently listened as we briefly explained the constraints of our project and what we thought we wanted in our new fireplace.
Tim then showed us around the showroom. We were impressed with the complete fireplace displays and the samples of fireplace doors, mantles and other accessories. It was a tremendous help to actually see the products and assembled fireplaces.
We then went back to Tim’s desk and discussed in detail our options. Tim was fantastic in explaining the technical decisions we had to consider. We had brought with us some limited data about our home and old fireplace (room size, fireplace dimensions, etc.). A lengthy discussion then ensued during which, with Tim’s help, we finalized many product and design options that we were stuck on. Tim demonstrated extensive knowledge of fireplace design, product features and a sensitivity to our budget. During the talk we made many trips to the displays and Tim showed us construction details and took measurements to help with our design. He also made very useful suggestions on what type of mantlepiece would be attractive and practical for us to consider. At all times Tim was patient, friendly and enthusiastic about helping us.
We left the store about 4:00 PM with a preliminary order for a set of fireplace doors, a fireplace grate and a set of fireplace tools. We will consult with our mason and, after his agreement, contact Tim to submit the order. We are confident that, because of Tim’s help, we will have purchased the best set of products properly sized for our project.
We would like to compliment you on the extent and quality of your showroom displays. No Internet search could ever be as helpful as actually seeing and touching the actual items. More importantly, the chance to talk with a friendly and knowledgeable person like Tim is even more valuable. We have rarely had the pleasure to deal with a salesperson as competent as Tim. We hope that you appreciate how great an employee he is.
Debbie – 5 star rating
I can say nothing but wonderful things about best fire from the moment we walked in the door being greeted by the front door staff to George who helped out with our replacement of a new fireplace to Keith and Cody who did the major job of reconstructing an old fireplace to a stunning new fireplace . Thank you keith and Cody for your professionalism to your creativity and patients throughout the whole project.
Donna – Service Call
Just had Craig & Ron here for a service call to my Regency gas fireplace. Craig is very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and explains
everything well. Both guys provided GREAT customer service. I can certainly see why you have them in your employ.
Carmella – Gas Insert
I recently had a gas insert fireplace installed. The service was excellent from Jason in sales to the installers. Even though there were some unforeseen issues that came up in the install they were professional and friendly. I love my new fireplace and have told everyone I know about the great service I had with Best Fire. Thanks. Carmella
Scott & Heather – Incredible work, fireplace replacement, gas conversion, rock and custom mantle
The entire team was great, from start to finish…..
George & Joann – Installing & servicing
My husband and I want to tell you that we just put in our 2nd fireplace from your company. Craig cleaned our first fireplace and was very pleasant to talk to. He also explained why the fireplace needed to be cleaned every couple of years. We were very comfortable with his workmanship. Keith was the person who installed our 2nd fireplace. He also was very pleasant. When he was finished he asked me to look it over and to make sure all is ok. Well, I didn’t care for the paint job. No problem he said. He went out to the truck and came back with the paint and repainted the mantel. You have two very good people working for you. They should be recognized. The Parker’s
Lisa – gas fireplace service
Moe was at our home today to service our gas fireplace. He has serviced our fireplace on at least one prior occasion, which was the last time we had it serviced. He is timely, thorough, respectful, friendly, and professional. When we bought our home several years ago, we inherited a gas fireplace that was about eight years old. We had numerous and ongoing problems with it from the very beginning, for a couple of years, despite frequent visits from the first company we were using. Since we started using Best Fire several years ago, we have not had a single issue with our fireplace (which we use frequently during the winter months), something we do not take for granted. Over the years, I have found Best Fire’s representatives to be helpful and honest, recommending service only when needed, and charging a reasonable cost.
Scott – Best Fire review 🙂
From fireplace selection, design, removal and installation Best Fire was incredible. Kyle, Luke and team were very customer service focused. We love our new fireplace, stone rock and custom mantle….
Chuck and Chris – Thank You!
Saratoga Springs, NY
Thanks for your note, which we received yesterday. I just wanted to say how positive the experience of working with Best Fire has been. We have undertaken numerous renovations in our condo over the last two years; none has been better than working with you. From initially discussing our ideas with you through working with Wayne, the entire process was as clear and efficient as one could hope for. Keeping us informed, explaining issues thoroughly, offering us a more than fair price, helping us find the perfect outside grill, and of course the smooth installation by Matt and Justin (I hope I have their names right) — all of this was terrific.
You can bet we will pass along our very positive experience to others in the Saratoga and Birch Run communities who are undertaking their own renovations.
Henry – New Fireplace Sales Experience
My wife and I recently visited Best Fire in Troy and sat down with one of their sales associates to discuss a new gas fireplace for our home. The experience was education and informative. We scheduled an appointment to have Best Fire come to our home to take measurements and further discuss the fireplace. The associate showed up exactly when he said he would and was very professional. He even offered advice on how to improve our current home heating system. Overall this was a wonderful experience, we will be doing business with Best Fire for many years.
