That is what it is supposed to do. There is a temperature switch that opens and closes as the coolant reaches certain temps. When it reads those temps it turns the fans on or off as needed. Your fan circuit is separate from your ignition to allow it to keep the engine cooled down after you shut the car off. This prevents possible damage to the engine due to heat. Today's engine have a lot more aluminum in them and it is affected by heat more so than the old cast iron engines. It is more noticable in warm weather because things heat faster and cool slower. Unless the fans run steady or not at all, you should be okay. Turning on the A/C will turn them on quicker and longer because it makes the engine work a lot harder. Hope this helps.
