Winter weather can increase the risk of moisture damage to your hearing aids.

It’s winter in Atlantic Canada. That means, snow, ice, and wild changes in temperature. This type of weather can increase the risk of moisture damage to your hearing aids. The best thing you can do is try to keep your hearing aids dry. Cover your ears with a headband or hood to prevent snow and sleet from getting into the microphones.

When you come in from the cold, the sudden increase in temperature can cause condensation to build up in your hearing aids. When you take your hearing aids out, inspect them for moisture, including the battery compartment, and use a dry cloth to wipe them down if you notice any condensation.

Finally, put your hearing aids in a dehumidifier overnight. Dehumidifiers specifically designed for your hearing aids can be purchased from your hearing aid provider and will absorb moisture that has built up in your devices.
