Should a steel door be freezing cold indoors?

I had a new front door (steel) installed this summer. Now it's winter and the door inside is so cold I wonder if it has been installed correctly.

Can anyone advise?

Tongue stuck on the door ouch

For what its worth, I had a "Stanley" steel door that was cold also.
It had a thermal break and that did not work too well. I just replaced it with a "Pella" fiberglass door and a new "Anderson" storm door and its so much better now. Wood or fiberglass is the way to go. If you like to stain, go with wood as fiberglass is tough to apply stain to; unless you have the factory apply the stain.

Stanley vs Pella

Thank you RJordan for your reply. I paid a fortune for this door. I will check my bills and contact the company. Promise to raise hell and see what gives.
