It must be climate/geography-based. We're more likely to need AC here than heat, so that's the default. I'd imagine it's vice versa for you.

I had similar conversations with the facilities director at my old job, and I'm sympathetic to how much of a hassle it can be.
Still, it's one thing to have trouble dialing it in, especially when you have a day where the temperature is pretty extreme in either direction, but it's another thing entirely to chill the air when it has been cold outside.
