    Hello Stephen, You could use weather stripping. That will stop the cold air from coming inside your house. During the winter we use a draft stopper, which is really a long roll with fabric on it. I put it up against the bottom of the door and it stops that cold air from coming in. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

    you may need to replace the seals on the doors. on a couple of my doors i could just put a strip of foam weather stripping and its good...the other i had to use the plastic coated rope with a flange attached.

    If the cold air is coming through the bottom, use a draft protector, a rag rug, an old towel, or even a crumpled sheet up against the door to keep out drafts. You can use a roll of weatherstripping around all four sides. I like the kind with the sticky strip that stays on by itself. One other easy way to stop drafts is to nail or thumbtack a quilt, blanket, or a couple of sheets from above the door. You have to leave it loose enough on the bottom and doorknob side so you can hold it back to open the door. It's not pretty, but it's easy and free. Best wishes 😇

    Stick on foam seal strips on the top and sides. Felt strips and a draft stopper strip along the bottom.
