I love traveling and go any chance I can get, preferably if it includes a stopover at a theme park. Even a business trip is an opportunity to find something new in this vein. I don’t care if it is a small venue as long as it qualifies as an amusement park with exhibits and/or rides. Sometimes these regional places surprise you with their creativity and décor. One time I visited a park museum that contained circus and roller coaster memorabilia. The posters were the best part—huge hand paintings of the most famous acts and animals in history. It was comprehensive and the kind of thing I would be likely to do. The issue is finding good relics of the past. Theme parks have a long history, especially if you include the traveling circus in this category. They go back so far that they are the forerunners of the amusements parks of today, except maybe for the boardwalk at Coney Island.

Given this passion, I am often out of the house for days at a time. When I return, I find the interior air to be stale and musty. I keep the windows closed to ward off theft and turn off the air conditioning or heater, as the need may be, to avoid unnecessary expense. Thus, the automatic fan is not running that usually keeps air circulating. This problem is one of the few drawbacks of traveling. It isn’t serious enough to keep me at home. I decided on a simple solution: an air purifier or ozone cleaner. They both work well and cost about the same, according to https://www.nomoresmokesmell.net/ozone-vs-air-purification-pros-cons/. The operating principle is different.

There are some reported risks to the ozone version, but I don’t think they are enough to prevent the on-going manufacture of these units. They all freshen and sanitize the air using a different system. Allergens, pollutants and gases are gone. If one is more energy efficient than the other, I might go this route. We do what we can to be “green.” It comes down to a preference for a certain technology. I decided not to spend an inordinate amount of time on the research. Read a few product descriptions and reviews and place an order. Simple as that!

I decided on the Dyson because it is so cool looking and has a glass HEPA filter. It sits there monitoring the room like a sentry made of metal. It knows poor indoor quality by some mysterious process. I paid a bit more than I had intended just based on looks alone. I also know it will work well for the entire house. No more returning home after traveling and coking on the air. I now plan a trip, empty the refrigerator, lock the windows and doors and put the Dyson on auto mode. I suppose someday you will talk to these creatures with voice commands!
