    The fans on my Late 2011 Air are going wild for some reason. I'm hardly using any applications. CPU usage is low. I'm indoors. Yet the computer his warm to the touch. This is very unusual. Any idea what might be happening?

    It appears there is an issue with the System Management Controller, or SMC for short, in your MacBook Air. These instructions should fix your issue, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964.
