Energy saving tips

This 1 door in our house has been driving me silly since the fall, until our roommate and I finally came up with a way to deal with it. Both of us thought of all the doors in the house, this nice slider door wouldn’t be a problem. It was a brand modern Andersen door when we moved into the rental home, so we thought it wouldn’t give us a single issue. Well the concern is it wasn’t installed right because the house is crooked, so there’s a major slant of a gap between the door and where it sits inside the slider. There’s no easy cure for it, and the property owner assures us it’s fine. The concern is, the door is recessed. There are curtain hanging brackets in the ceiling a few feet in front of, but these won’t work to stop the drafts, however energy saving curtains need to be pretty snug and covering a window or door in order to effectively block chilly air from entering a home. For weeks we’ve dealt with being chilly on the couch by the door no matter how high we turn up the oil heating, until finally 1 afternoon we knew what to do. Both of us were shopping when our roommate realized we could just get a shower curtain tension rod and energy saving curtains. This way we could pull off this energy saving tip regularly, and sure enough, we now have no more drafts, and setting it up only took a few minutes. With this innovated set up, the house is so much warmer and our central heating system is cycling a lot less!
