I don't know what to do? Should I buy another one? Should I open windows at home or turn on the HRV more often?
If you need to keep your humidity down in the spring, then you should be checking the humidity before opening the windows. If it is high outside, it will bring your humidity inside up. If your furnace is not running, you could turn the fan on and run your dehumidifier to reduce humidity.
