It depends on the setting you're using. Only time it should have a "load" is when you use the defroster. Reason being is to keep the A/C compressor from getting siezed while not being used during the winter months. So the defroster kicks the compressor on and cycles it. Also helps pull moisture from inside the cabin as well.
it does this on any setting. i would expect it if i pressed the max/ac button but it does this in multi and heat.
