Unhappy new storm door icing up INSIDE!

Please help! We just had a new aluminum storm door & new interior door installed this summer. Well, now that it's cold here in Jersey, when I opened the front interior door, there was ice covering the entire glass on the inside of the storm door! We've tried putting weather strip tape around the door sills, but it hasn't helped. How do you find out where the air is escaping, causing the storm door to ice up? Forget the company that installed it, they were totally uncooperative. Thank you!

The problem is warm air escaping through the interior door. I'm surprised since both doors have been recently installed and should have a good seal. You can try using a bright light at night around the edges of the door and look from the inside for gaps the would let in the light.
