Very warm basement

I have a Weil-McLain furnace for steam heat and hot water. I have my thermstat turned down low for the summer but I have noticed that the pipes in the basement are still hot. Also, the basment is very warm. I understand that the furnace will run to make hot water, but it just seem abnormally warm down there. Does this sound normal?

The pipes above the boiler should not be too hot. The temperature control should prevent steam from being made all summer long so if you have hot pipes, maybe the control is set too high, or over running and making steam.
