Hearing Aid Repairs For Nova Scotia
Hearing aids are essential equipment for those who need a boost when it comes to hearing and communicating with others.
Besides helping you stay connected with friends and loved ones, your device makes it possible for you to continue to interact with coworkers, neighbours, and other members of the community, enabling you to carry out the basic daily tasks of an independent lifestyle.
When your hearing aids don’t perform as designed, you can become frustrated and stop wearing them. To continue receiving the advantages provided by your hearing aids even when they are underperforming or not working at all, we offer hearing aid wearers throughout Nova Scotia the opportunity to have their device repaired.
Whether you take advantage of Remote Access Hearing Care for troubleshooting or programming support or need to bring them by the office for maintenance and/or repair, Provincial Hearing has you covered.
Three Common Hearing Aid Repair Issues
Among the thousands of hearing aids we’ve repaired over the years, the majority of repair issues fall into one of three categories:
- Wax buildup penetrates the delicate electronic components, causing them to malfunction.
- Excessive moisture leads to shorting or a faulty connection due to corrosion.
- Broken components and loose wires from dropping and/or stepping on your device, faulty components, or daily wear.
Quick Tip: Most repair issues can be avoided by developing a faithful habit of daily cleaning and care of your hearing aids, avoiding moisture, performing frequent inspections of your device to identify problems before they get worse, and keeping up with deep cleaning and scheduled maintenance appointments.

Q. Why should I trust you to fix my hearing aids?
A. We’ve been repairing and servicing hearing aids for several years, keeping hundreds of clients happy, many without even having to send the hearing aid to a factory to be repaired!
Q. Can’t I just repair my hearing aid at home?

Dummy Item - DO NOT DELETE
Q. Should I replace or repair my hearing aids?
A. There are occasions when repairs might cost more than replacement, but that’s usually not the case. If the damage is irreversible and it is covered by your device manufacturer, then replacement makes a lot of sense. It also makes sense if your hearing aids have a long history of needing repair, are out of warranty, and/or are near or beyond the typical five years of service in order to take advantage of new technology.
Q. How long will repairs take?
A. Simple repairs can be done while you wait. When there is extensive damage or when we have to send them to the manufacturer, it will take longer, but we’ll work to get them back to you as soon as possible.
