Welcome to Heat UP Illinois!

"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!

At first glance, this program seems simple in design: 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. Behind the scenes, though, you’ll find a network of industry leaders coming together to make this program work!

First, we have 3 key ingredients:

  • Lennox Industries, who donates the furnaces and sponsor Honeywell, who donates thermostats for each installation.
  • Local Lennox heating contractors, who donate the installation materials and whose employees donate their labor to install the furnaces.
  • People like you, who nominate neighbors in your community!

Second, there are many others who have helped this program become a success. And, best of all, the news is spreading! 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.
