Although it may be possible to anneal oligos at room temperature, heating to denature the oligos and then cooling slowly to anneal the two oligos will help to ensure more efficient annealing and favor the stable duplex formation.
If you choose not to heat the oligos, it would be prudent to carefully screen the oligos for secondary structures which could interfere with the annealing reaction.
More information on how to anneal oligos can be found in the Annealing Oligos DECODED™ article.
