How to Take Care of Your Hearing Aids in Winter

The Winter Challenge for Your Hearing Aids

During the winter season, it’s essential to pay special attention to the care of your hearing aids as the humid environment and temperature changes can cause condensation inside them. This poses a high risk of deterioration in their performance

Signs of Issues in Your Hearing Aids

If you notice that your hearing aids have increased sound distortion, more static noise, irregular turning on or off, or experience accelerated battery wear, this may indicate the presence of moisture inside..

Tips for Caring for Your Hearing Aids This Winter

Here are some tips from Valle Visio to properly care for your hearing aids during the winter season:

1. Drying Your Hearing Aids

During the night, when you’re not using the hearing aids, it’s advisable to place them in a location where they can dry properly. There are cases specially designed to eliminate moisture. If you don’t have one, you can leave the hearing aids with the battery compartment open to allow internal moisture to evaporate. Important: Do not use any heat-emitting devices to speed up the process, as it could damage the hearing aids.

2. Battery Storage

Keep your hearing aid batteries in a dry and cool environment, avoiding extreme temperatures. Adverse weather conditions can shorten the lifespan of batteries and require more frequent changes.

3. Optimal Fastening

In cold weather, we tend to bundle up more with hats and scarves, which can accidentally cause hearing aids to fall off when removing them. Since winter can also bring rain or snow, it’s crucial to secure the fastening of the hearing aids. To keep them safe, you can use retention cords to prevent them from falling and getting wet in case of accidents.

Remember that properly caring for your hearing aids not only prolongs their lifespan but also ensures optimal performance for a satisfying hearing experience during winter and beyond.
