Improve your storm door functionality by installing a storm door sweep. A storm door sweep is a panel located at the base of your door; that is used to keep air flow from entering or escaping the building, and to keep out unwanted bugs and pests.

A storm door sweep is standard on all types of doors. The doors thickness determines what size of you are going to need. The bottom of most modern doors has slots built into them, so that the old sweep can simply be pulled off; and the new one slipped on in its place. Some alterations may need to be done for older doors, such as having to take the door off the hinges; and removing the old sweep with a hammer or pry bar, before nailing a new one into place. Here are some steps about how to change a door sweep on a modern slotted door; that is ready for sweep maintenance from wear and tear.
Open the door to reveal its edge. Remove the storm door sweep by placing your right hand on the door near the door latch or lock. Reaching down to the end of the door sweep with your left hand. Grab the base of the door sweep, and gently pull toward you. The plastic or rubber lining will start to come free from the door, sliding outward from the doors base.

The next section is the channel that hooks to the door, that the rubber connects to. Grab the outside edge of the sweep gently by the tip and slowly pull it out as well. Notice the slotted notches on the bottom of the door that held the old sweep into place. Look at your new storm door sweep, and see two edges on the tips of it, that run down the length or the material. You will want to line these up with the slots on the base of your door and begin to push the new part on. Slowly feed the sweep onto the door until you cannot slide it on the hand any longer. With a rubber mallet gently tap it onto the door the rest of the way until it lines up flush on the edges.
