Door Draft Stopper


what would you use for a door draft stopper for a bedroom door?

i've seen these cheap tubes in stores, but don't think they work.

What type heat do you have?
The reason I ask is if it's forced air there needs to be a gap under the door for return air flow.

Door Draft Stopper


Is the reason you need this is because the room is going to be unheated and your trying to close it off?
