With colder weather now upon us, we’d like to offer you some tips to keep your hearing aids operating at their best during the frigid winter months:
• Remember to keep extra batteries on hand and carry some with you when you’ll be away from home for any length of time.
• When you’re going to be outside, wear a hat, a headband or earmuffs to protect your hearing aids, and your ears, from exposure to moisture and cold air.
• When not in use, place your hearing aids in a dehumidifier to absorb any condensation that may have accumulated within your devices.
• Never place your hearing aids on or near a heater.
Keep in mind, proper care and storage of your hearing aids will help them last longer and work better. Bring your devices in quarterly for cleaning and maintenance. We offer daily walk-in hours from 11am to 1pm for these services. If your hearing aids require adjustments or reprogramming, it may take a little longer, so please schedule an appointment at any one of our locations in Mason City and the surrounding areas.
