Air purifiers are becoming outrageously popular as a simple and effective way to remove and reduce allergens and more from your home. Let’s take a look at the Bulex brand air purifier.
4 Stage Filtration System
Filters out large dust particles and pet hair.
- True HEPA filter:
The heart of the filter. The HEPA filter collects smaller particles like pollen and allergens. Collects as much as 99.97% of particles.
- Activated Charcoal Fiber:
Carbon filters are meant to target odors, whether it be the smoke from a nearby wildfire, chemicals from a recent home project, or simply dinner cleanup.
- Degerming filter:
Bulex’s special filter that sanitizes the air before it is re-released into your home.
Fan Speeds and Timer
With this Bulex air purifier, you can set it and forget it. Choose one of four fan speeds and your timer of either 2 hours, 4 hours, or 8 hours. The air purifier will do the rest and shut off after the timer goes off.
Pure Copper Motor
Bulex says that their HEPA air purifiers use pure copper motors for the best purifying experience. Because copper motors use less heat, there is less of a need for fan cooling, so customers can save on energy and reduce noise.
Good Area Coverage
As with most air purifiers for allergies and asthma, this air purifier by Bulex was made for moderately sized rooms of up to 202 square feet, making them great for bedrooms or living rooms. In an area of this size, the purifier can circulate the air in the space up to 4 times per hour.
Because of the quiet copper motor, this air purifier has an advantage over other brands by being whisper quiet, marketing their decibel rating on low at just a mere 32 dB (only slightly louder than a mosquito).
Safe Material Construction
According to the company, the “Bulex air purifier is designed to prevent any accidental injuries.”
All the edges are rounded and smoothed, and the body is designed with harmless ABS material; the same plastic as LEGO are made with.
Aesthetics and Aerodynamics
The tower design of this air purifier is certainly like others that we’ve reviewed before, and we find it to be one of the best styles.
That’s because it has a 360-degree air intake, pulling in air from every corner of the room.
The centrifugal blower then spins and blows fresh air up towards the ceiling in a very effective chain of command.
The display panel on this air purifier is intuitive and easy to use, back with a soft blue light. You also have the option to turn off the lights in Sleep Mode, if you wish.
Bulex Air Purifier Review
|Coverage Area||202 Sq. ft.|
|Filtration Type||4 Stage HEPA|
|Filtration Life||6 Months|
|Noise Level||32 dB (low)|
|Air Quality Sensor||No|
Everyone deserves clean air, and the Bulex HEPA Air Purifier is marketing this fantastic option that will fit any budget. This sleek, black tower air purifier is only 5.57 lbs, making it easy to carry from room to room. It will seamlessly blend it with your home’s existing décor and be used either on the floor or a tabletop. Although not yet available at the time of this writing, Bulex is working on making the same model in the color white, if you’re not fond of the black color.
Don’t confuse small and portable as weak, though. This portable air purifier can easily cover a room as large as 202 square feet, circulating the air there up to four times in just an hour. Four stage HEPA filtration will capture up to 99.97% of contaminants, including dust mites, pollen, allergens, pet dander, viruses, bacteria, and more. A red light will alert you when it’s time to change the air filter.
According to other Bulex air purifier reviews, the stand-out feature of this model is how extraordinarily quiet it is. On Sleep Mode (the lowest fan setting), the decibel rating is just 32 dB.
There’s a solid chance that your home HVAC system is even louder than that! Even at it’s highest speed, the decibel rating is under 50 dB.
The only thing we’re not loving about the Bulex air purifier is its warranty. According to their website, the company only offers a 30 day promise on their air purifiers. We would have liked to have seen at least a one year warranty.
However, Bulex has recently revamped their customer service protocols and now guarantees one-to-one assistance 24/7, so you should have no problems getting in touch with them should you need to.
Overall, the Bulex air purifier is a moderately priced home air purifier that makes a great addition to any room, whether it be your office, bedroom, kitchen, or even classroom!

About the Bulex Brand
Bulex is a company founded in Hong Kong in 2012 that now markets dozens of products throughout 160 countries worldwide.
The Bulex air purifier is brand new to the market in 2020 after two years of research and development to bring to the market the best product for removing bacteria and viruses.
The company would like customers to know that they completely revamped their customer service experience in 2019 and now offer one-to-one assistance.
Comparing Bulex with Similar Air Purifier Brands
Bulex vs. Hathaspace
Whereas the Bulex air purifier is great for small rooms, Hathaspace air purifiers are built for much larger spaces, of up to 1500 square feet, depending on the model. Hathaspace air purifiers are super high quality and come with smart features and a five year warranty, but you’ll also have to pay for these upgrades at a price much higher than the Bulex.
Bulex vs. Levoit
Levoit has more choices for your air purifying needs, but when it comes to their Core P350 model, it’s very similar to the Bulex model. The Bulex model, however, does offer one more additional level of filtration, but Levoit is quieter. The trade-off will depend on your preferences.
Bulex vs. Honeywell
Honeywell obviously has the advantage of being a brand name that most Americans are already familiar with in some capacity or another. They have a complete range of air purifiers to Bulex’s single model and are also competitively priced. If you’re looking for a style other than the tower model provided by Bulex, then Honeywell might be a good place to start.
People Also Ask (FAQ)
Where do I get the replacement filters for Bulex air purifier?
The air filters for the Bulex air purifiers aren’t as commonplace as other filters, so you may have trouble finding them in your local hardware store. Luckily, Amazon usually has them on hand.
What is the best setting for controlling pet hair and pet dander?
Your Bulex air purifier will certainly help manage pet dander, but you’ll still need to vacuum and dust regularly.
For homes with pets, I recommended using the medium fan setting on your air purifier each time you run it.
If you’re looking to eliminate pet odors from an accident or mess, use the fan at the highest setting until the odor is removed.
Does the Bulex air purifier emit ions?
No. This air purifier uses a True HEPA filter and not an ionizer.
How far from the wall should you place this purifier?
In general, you should keep your air purifiers 18-24” away from any wall or piece of furniture that might block it from working sufficiently.
Where can I buy a Bulex Air Purifier?
If you’re in the US, I highly recommend purchasing your Bulex air purifier online through Amazon. You can also find it readily available through the Bulex website.
Bulex may not have the range of air purifiers that we’re used to seeing from other brands, but the model they do have is a solid choice for middle-of-the-road budgets. You’ll breathe easy with 4 stage filtration that only needs to be changed twice a year and whisper-quiet function.
