Recently put a storm door on my front door (which faces directly south). Now the glass in my storm door is acting like a magnifying glass and making the surface of the regular door too hot to touch. This is OK when I'm home because I can just open the front door, but I'm concerned what that intense heat will possibly do to the door since I'm not at home during the week and can't leave the main door open. Could the heat melt the rubber seal around the door? I have a brass doorknocker, kickplate and handle - could the heat damage any of these? Is there anything I can do? The only thing I thought of is raising the sweep on the bottom of the storm door so instead of being tight to the threshold, there is a gap there to let air in/out. Would this help at all? Thanks for the help.
