Warming centers are also available in state facilities all across 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.
