In fact I think this is the key interesting characteristic to map:  does it
have a chiller or heater at all?
The specific temperature is likely set by the user, or varies by the
season, and thus is a poor choice for a database key value.

Either the substance is supplied at local ambient, or a facility is made to
raise or lower the temperature:

Frequently it's adjustable just one way.  For example we have water heaters
for showers, but a water chiller is exceptionally rare.

'temperature=adjustable' does not capture it really.  A hotel room with a
heater but no cooler for example is "adjustable", but
not a good place to go when it's 100F and humid.
