A/C compressor cycles on by itself

I recently purchased a new 2016 Chevy Colorado. The A/C compressor automatically starts after starting the engine and setting the thermostat to heat and turning the fan on. Thinking there was a problem I went back to the dealership. I was informed that this is normal and there is nothing wrong. However, no one could explain why this happens. Is there any one out there that can explain why this happens.

it helps to reduce window fogging by removing moisture from the air. the a/c will run periodically but not for long periods as to cause evaporator freezing.
