You'll have to do a little investigating. The draft could be coming
from around the windows (are the older?). We could feel a draft
coming from the outlets in the living room so put an 'outlet
insulator' under the plate ==> can be purchased in hardware stores.
Is a set of thin foam panels with cutouts for the duplex outlets and
switches.

That outlet insulator, is that the same kind of insulator foam pad that
comes with exterior GFCI outlets?

Similar, but a different foam. The interior ones are usually off-white,
while the exterior ones are dark grey.
The exterior ones serve more as a weather gasket, while the interior
ones serve as insulation.
