"Plus the heat build up through a storm door on the south side."

My unit has an east-west exposure with metal doors behind storm doors. In the morning my rear door (east exposure) gets too hot to touch, in the afternoon it's the same with the front door.

And I do mean HOT.

I live on the coast, 45deg north, 66 west. West facing front door (wood, small window, storm door outside). I've seen Christmas wreaths turn red in a single afternoon, such is the heat build-up.

Keeping the storm door window cracked an inch helps immeasurably, FWIW.
