The gaps around a door may seem insignificant, but they allow outside air to enter and can make a big difference in the temperature of a room. Proper weather stripping closes the gaps and creates a tight weather seal, keeping the inside temperature more consistent. Hiring a professional installer to add weather stripping to your doors is relatively inexpensive and can result in lower heating and cooling costs.

Check the gaps around the edges of the door. If there is a visible gap between the door and the door frame, fill that gap with weather stripping. Use a pliable rubber seal or a soft felt type material to completely fill in the open area and create a better air block. These strips are typically attached to the frame, although they may instead be fastened to the door edge if preferred.
Special weather stripping is also available to cover the small crack where the door meets the frame. Even if the door closes tightly, some air may still move through the opening and compromise the tight weather seal. Apply a surface-mounted strip, attach it to the door and adjust it to cover the crack completely when the door is fully closed.
The gap under the door is often the most difficult to seal. A door is usually installed with sufficient clearance to avoid rubbing the flooring under it, which leaves an air gap. Weather stripping designed to attach to the bottom of the door can solve the problem. The stripping is adjustable so that it can close the gap completely yet it's soft enough not to cause damage to the flooring materials.
