REVIEW – It’s surprising just how much dust can collect in your home. For those with breathing problems, like my wife, air filtration it can be crucial. Bulex offered to send along their AF-3222 Air Purifier for review, so I gladly offered to give it a try.

Design and features
I used to have a small air purifier in our bedroom, but it made only a tiny difference. The amount of dust and dander that can build up in a home is staggering. Carpets, clothing, bedding, and skin cells can create quite a bit of foreign material in a relatively short period.
The Bulex AF-3222 Air Purifier features a 4-Stage HEPA filter. The filter consists of a Pre-Filter, True HEPA Filter, Activated Carbon Filter, and Net Filter. Each level of filtration accomplishes a different task of filtering the air in your home or office.
Filtering particles as small as 0.3 microns, the AF-3222 removes 99. 97% of airborne particles. The Bulex HEPA air purifier can clean the air in a room up to 404 sq ft in 30 minutes. The patented true HEPA Filter has 161 folds to triple the normal HEPA filtration area, which extends the lifespan of the filter. There are 12.92 sq ft of filter material in the filter.
The multi-function touch panel is easy to read and operate with its on-screen “buttons.” There are buttons for power, fan speed, timer, and lighting. There’s also a filter replacement notice that will illuminate when needed.
The 4-speed fan and three timer modes (2, 4, 8 hr) allow circulating room air four times per hour to achieve rapid purification. The “sleep” fan speed is rated at just 32db.
The Lagoon Blue Light provides just enough lighting to be helpful to see in the dark but not so bright as to hinder sleep. I really like this feature, as it’s pretty dark in my bedroom.
I appreciate the economical replacement filters. At the time of this writing, a two-pack of filters is only $39.99, which is quite a bit better than some of the other air purifiers I’ve had. Some of them have filters that cost almost as much as the machine.
The Bulex AF-3222 air purifier’s compact size (only 5.57lb) enables you to move it between rooms if needed quickly. Taking up just an 8″ x 8″ (20cm x 20cm) area, the AF-3222 can fit on almost any surface.
What I like
- Excellent filtration
- Great range of fan speeds
- The blue nightlight
- Economic replacement filter prices.
What I’d change
- Nothing I can think of
The Bulex AF-3222 Air Purifier works excellent and is economical to use. The attractive design fits well in any room and is easy to operate.
