Question Air Pressure Making Door Hard to Open?

I just installed a new exterior door leading to my 3 season porch and the door is difficult to open. When you open the door you really have to pull to get it open - it feels like there is an air pressure issue that makes it so diffcult. Do you have any ideas on what I should check or change to fix this problem? Thanks in advance!

See if the threshold is adjustable. The weather strip on the bottom of the door may be dragging more than is should making the door hard to open. Also check the reveal around the door. If it is not a consistent gap then you may have to shim one of the hinges or drive a longer screw to adjust the square of the door.
