From Air Quality Matters:

Feel the Chill? If you’re feeling a faint draft, and are constantly turning up the thermostat, your house may need an insulation boost! This is sometimes as simple as caulking, sealing and weather-stripping your doors and windows. By doing this you’ll reduce unnecessary heating-related emissions, keeping your heating bills and pollution down to a minimum!

Hitting the Road? Did you know that a few simple tweaks can ready your car for a cleaner and safer commute? Replacing your car filter, keeping your tires properly inflated, rotating them and accelerating slowly will reduce air pollution and frequency of fuel-ups!

From EPA:

Did you know?: If you buy a new wood stove before December 31, 2011, you might qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $500? See the EPA's Burn Wise page for more information on safe burning: http://www.epa.gov/burnwise/
