I didn’t really notice

My living room is in a refurbished room of the house; Just looking at it, you can tell that it clearly used to be screened-in porch, that was later turned into an additional spare room. I had always thought for the first few months that the reason it was drafty was due to all of the windows plus the different shape. It’s fairly cut off from the rest of the house, so it doesn’t get much heat from the layout. Fortunately, the room has its own Heating as well as A/C zone control with even a different type of heating than the rest of the house. While the beach house correct runs on oil heater, the spare room runs on an electric gas furnace system. Finally once Winter season gave way to Spring, I decided to investigate the problem. It turns out the door was never properly sealed, then the two of us suspect it was the absolutely same door from the original screened-in porch in the 60s. Rather than take it off plus apply the gaskets, the older owners simply took some kind of industrial felt plus nailed it in long strips around the edges of the door with tiny decorative nails, however like trying to put a door sock around an entire door, then now that it’s warmer, we’ve taken the whole thing off plus just left the screen door shut. Rehabbing the door was legitimately easy, the two of us just brought it out to the driveway plus followed an instructional video with parts of the hardware store. We’re hoping this simple improvement will help keep the spare room warmer this Winter season, plus save us a few dollars on the central gas furnace bill.
