Why my TravelMate P614-51T-72R0 fan does not stop ever?

I primarily use Linux as my main OS. I know Acer does not support Linux, but I read that Windows machines have same issue.
So my issue is that fan does not ever stop, even when idle. Idle cpu temp is not high 36-37C. Is it possible to make it work only on load?
It is annoying to constantly hear that noise. 

BIOS Version: V1.01

    And I forgot to add that fan spins not fast, with a minimal speed and still is annoying.

    I tell you even more, it's winter now and it is 5C degrees outside. So I brought my laptop outside and cooled it's cpus to 25C. And guess what, fan was still working!

    O my God! After updating BIOS from 1.01 to 1.04 the problem disappears! Acer, I love you!
