* Doors and windows can often allow drafts in during winter
* Door blockers help keep your house warm and cozy

Despite all our best efforts to keep our homes cozy and block out the cold, openings like doors and windows often create gaps that can allow in drafts. To keep your house warm, and your heating bill down, SPY has found six door blockers in a variety of styles and shapes, so you can find the one that best suits your home — and personality.
