Why is a Hearing Aid Like Your Car?

When was the last time you had your car serviced or cleaned?

Do you change the tyres when they wear out? Does it feel like it goes that little bit better when it's clean?

How about the brakes, I guess you have them looked at from time to time? Do you fill it up with petrol (or charge with electricity!)

It's not hard to imagine how a car would become like if you didn't look after it regularly and even spend a little bit of money on it too.

Well a hearing aid isn't quite as much fun as a soft top classic car, but to the folks who use them, it can be just as important and a hearing aid needs regular looking after too, just like your car.

The Tubes can become brittle and hard, wax can accumulate and don't get me started on the effects of moisture or condensation :-( Batteries need replacing regularly, just like filling up the tank, but cheaper.

At Connevans we have pretty much everthing to keep your hearing aid in tip top condition, from new Tubes & Domes, to Drying Boxes for overnight care.

So in the same way as you look after your car, remember to give your hearing aids some TLC too and they will give you long service in return.
