Tips for stopping drafts through front door?
« on: February 24, 2016, 05:11:00 PM »
The front door on my house just leaks heats and brings in loads of cold air. It makes the whole house frigid in the cold months. Are there any tips or tricks you've used to block drafts from coming in and stop heat from escaping your door?

Unfortunately no amount of tinkering will completely fix this problem. It sounds like you need a new, modern, well-fitted door. If you don't have the money, one thing I would always recommend would be to put a tall rug at the foot of the door. This will at least plug one crack.

You can actually buy thin strips of material that cover cracks on the outside of the door - I believe they attach to the wall and when the door closes it slots into them. This sounds like it may be useful in your case.
