Your door is drafty
If you’ve been putting off getting a new door because of the cost, don’t wait any longer. A draughty door can lead to an increased heating and cooling bill as well as lower property value. If you’re noticing more cold air coming into your home and are considering a new door, then don’t delay! The longer it takes to replace the old door with a newer one, the colder it will get in your house.
The lock is not working properly
