Ice forms inside of storm door

Q.    I purchased a storm door and had it professionally installed last summer. My problem is on snowy or frigid days, a sheet of ice forms on the inside of the storm door. I looked at the neighbors storm doors and no one else has this problem. Also, on occasion there is condensation on the inside of the storm door that I dry with paper towels. Would you have any suggestions?

A.    The problem you have is usually caused by the storm door being tighter than the primary door. You should allow some air leakage around the storm door by adjusting the bottom weatherstripping. Or you could increase the weatherstripping of the primary door.
