Install Screen/Storm Door

If you have central air-conditioning, it is important that
the screen/storm door closes rapidly. This is not so much
to increase the overall door insulation from the air gap
between the storm and primary door, but to reduce the
amount of outdoor air leaking into your house. This is
extremely important in the summer to cut down the
humidity inside your home for comfort and efficiency.
Check the adjustment of the door closer. The
temperature change from winter to summer will effect
its operation. You should adjust it each summer and
winter when the weather has stabilized. Don't do the
adjustment in the fall and spring when the temperatures
are moderate.
