I switched to macs and iPhone a few years ago a was plesently surprised. I got well and truely hooked into the osx/ios eco system and was very happy with it all. Then along came Sierra and then High Sierra. I support a lot of macs for students at work.
The sierra upgrade screwed up their wifi on a wide range of models (up against our login captive portal) then high sierra seemed to right a lot of their problems. For me, I've never heard the fans on my 2 macbook airs work so hard as they do running high sierra, and then I started having issues with our HP Clear Pass wifi solution. So, after looking at what I really use the most at work and home, I came up with a short list: Notes, icloud drive, various small appstore apps, telnet, ssh, serial-usb cable and driver, channalizer or Office inSSider. I made a boot USB with 10.11.6 yesterday and wiped my mac. SimpleNote replaces Notes and Google Drive replaces iCloud drive. The wifi problems have gone and the first machine (2013 MacBook Air) is now quiet, snappy and purring along. Simplenote is available on all platforms including winblows, so that's on my phone and ipad too - all synced.
And I got Telnet back. Thankfully, all the appstore stuff is compatible and running well.
Now my mac 'just works' again. **Edit: one redditor on this thread 'typo180' pointed out that 10.11.x might not do so well or even install on a 2017 Macbook Air that was released many months after El Capitan debuted. Well I did the install today and apart from a weird looking interface for the installation process, everything has gone smoothly and its running great on 10.11.6. I can't test to confirm, but from past experience, you won't be able to install a version of macOS that came out before the Mac did. It won't have the proper hardware profiles.
You might end up having performance or driver issues even if you can get it to work. There definitely have been some bugs that come along with new OS releases, but often they're pretty stable after a few point releases. If your MBAir is still running hot on High Sierra, I would first suspect one of these: • Some third-party software is not compatible or didn't get updated properly. I've seen this happen with Cisco AnyConnect and printer software and drivers myself. Other culprits are kernel extensions, pro audio software, device drivers or various device management, VPN, or antivirus solutions that companies like to install. It's a good idea to check Activity Monitor to see if you can figure out what's pegging the CPU.
Games for mac 2011 update. • Something went wrong in the upgrade and some Apple software process or iCloud sync is going haywire. Again, check Activity Monitor. Remove any offending third-party software to see if the problem goes away. See if you can install a newer version or just reinstall whatever the current version is.
A reinstall or a clean install of the OS might also help. Unless there's a bug or problem, it's really unlikely that High Sierra by itself is causing your machine to work hard and heat up. I have run it on older machines than that with no problem (though not specifically a 2013 MBAir).
