“Neighbors helping neighbors.” The motto for the Heat UP Illinois program is so appropriate: This program asks you to nominate someone you know who needs a helping hand. Then, local Lennox heating contractors install a new, high-efficiency Lennox furnace for those who are chosen!

This program is simple: Lennox Industries donates furnaces to participating Illinois Lennox dealers. Then, the dealers and their employees donate the installation materials and labor needed to install the furnaces.

NOMINATE! The Heat UP Illinois program is based on submissions. If we don’t know of someone who is deserving, we can’t help them!

Nominees are chosen based on a variety of criteria, including physical, mental, or social disabilities; financial challenges; job loss; military service; community service; and more. If you think someone is deserving, nominate them and tell us why!

HELP GET THE WORD OUT! Tell others about Heat UP Illinois: Tell your neighbors, your church, your children’s schools, and other local support organizations.

This (2016) is the inaugural year for the Heat U.P. Illinois program, but the “Heat U.P.” program itself began in 2010 in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Since then, Lennox Industries and dealerships have provided more than $2 million in support to households in need.
