    How can I seal a patio sliding door to stop the cold feeling I don’t feel a draft but it’s very cold near the patio door, I don’t want to stop using the patio. Is there any way to help the room stay warmer.

    I have never ever seen anyone take the time to tape an area to apply silicone. Unless of course you are a monkey and you cut the tip of the silicone well beyond a quarter of an inch. Practice on the areas that are less visible first.
    Also, use color matching silicone. You can use your finger and a rag to joint the silicone into the crack and to both surface areas. A thin bead, less is more. You only need to fill the crack.
    It shouldn’t take more than a minute Or two to apply the silicone and then join it with your finger wiping the excess off of your finger on to a rag as you go. If you do it this way, the way that he is doing it, it will take you forever and a day to hit every joint around the house.

    I don't have scribers on my windows and are not filled in. A couple of years ago I asked how to make them. Get that weather board angle. Can you do that?

    Multi-layer thermal curtains: definitely yes, even if you have double-glazing. Make sure they go all the way to the floor, and have enough material to remain slightly bunched when closed. Pelmets along the top are pretty unfashionable but helpful in reducing convection. Just watch for condensation on the cold side – you want the dew point of indoor air to remain below the air temperature in the space between window and curtain.
