Stand in the room, walk slowly toward the window or door and feel the temperature change as you get closer. Put your hands close to the glass areas and around the perimeter. It will always be slightly colder in this area but if it is easy to feel a difference, you may need to have some caulking or capping done on the exterior, add a storm door to an exterior door or maybe change the windows or doors completely. At the very least, closing blinds or hanging heavier weight curtains or drapes can help on the coldest days. Remember it doesn’t have to be a draft to make your room colder. Just a very cold surface will cause the temperature to drop.
