Warming centers are available in state facilities across
Illinois to help Illinois residents reduce their home heating
costs. These facilities are a safe, warm place to go during the
day while you turn your thermostat down (do not lower your
thermostat below 60 degrees). To complement the state effort,
mayors statewide have been asked to provide local warming
centers in their communities.
Warming center hours vary by location and are limited to each
facilities' regular business hours. Except for Tollway Oases,
warming centers do not offer food, drinks or other amenities.
