Simply so, do I need to run my air exchanger in the summer?

In a nutshell, you should shut off the HRV humidistatic control as soon as the furnace is not being used on the heat setting. The damp-feeling air and moisture on the windows in the summer months is proof that running the HRV unit at this time of year is detrimental.

Also, should you leave your air exchanger on all the time? Your air exchanger is most effective when run continuously. It'll take time for your exchanger to throw this polluted air out, even after you turn it back on. Keep your exchanger operating at low settings constantly, and you won't have to worry about stale air buildup.

Besides, when should I use an air exchanger in my house?

When these homes are too tightly built it creates moisture and condensation during the winter which is why they came out with air exchangers. The purpose of these air exchangers are to provide fresh air into the air system along with dehumidifying the existing air to ensure your home isn't creating mold growth.
