(CBS) – At a time when people usually think about winding down their air conditioners, some Chicago area residents are firing up their furnaces.

Friday, Jennifer’s Warden’s husband, who just happens to service furnaces for a living, was checking his own heater.

Joshua Tessier works for Oasis Heating. They got more than a dozen calls to check, service and replace furnaces when they’re usually still repairing A/C units.

“I had to order two furnaces today,” Tessier tells CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker.
