MacBook Air 13" fan won't stop running?

The fans in my laptop are constantly running even when I have no applications open. As soon as I turn the computer on, they are on full blast and don't stop no matter what I do. It's so loud and distracts me from everything I do, can someone please tell me how to stop it from being on 24/7?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
