- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of warm air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside.
