High Exhaust speeds

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014

I have had my MacBook for 3 years and it has run great. Recently I have noticed that my exhaust fan has been hovering around 6000 RPM for no apparent reason. When I took that screen shot I only had Safari Open

Here's the vitals on my Mac..

Any Thoughts?

    If you're keeping it on soft surfaces like pillows or seat cushions, then that can very rapidly contribute to heat build up. Same if there's something blocking ventilation. Could be dust inside fooling a temperature monitor into thinking it's hotter than it is, sending the fan speeds up?
