When you take a test, do you get testy? It’s funny how those words are so similar – and probably not a coincidence. If you’ve got school-age kids around, you might notice that they get testy when it’s exam time, or you might get testy when it’s time to see the grades!
Ultimately, testing is about measuring – and not just about measuring what has been learned in educational environments. For example, you’ve surely heard on your radio or television the break for the Emergency Broadcast System that begins, “This is a test.” Systems get tested to make sure they’ll be ready to do what they need to do when the time comes.
By the same token, you can think of a tune-up as a preseason test of your heating system. There’s a lot that needs to be measured and checked to ensure good performance during those heavy use days.
