Model Y Climate System Cycling On

A few months ago my Y's climate system (not sure if is the cabin or battery cooling system) started cycling on around 6am on most mornings, no matter if I had driven the car the previous day or had charged the batteries. The effect of this is leaving puddles in my garage. I took the car in for service on this and was told that this was "normal" however I know several other Tesla owners and this has never happened to any of them. Can anyone tell me if this is really "normal" or if it is an issue. Thanks.

There is also auto circulation to prevent moisture causing mildew smelling problems of the past. If not schedulated departure then perhaps condensation in the morning and it is trying to remove that?

IIRC, that just runs the cabin fan for 20 minutes after parking if your previous drive had the compressor on.

Thank you all. I am guessing that it is scheduled departure. I am going to turn that off and see if that takes care of the problem.
