Is is normal for a heated basement to be 70's and mechanical room to be 80's with heat off downstairs?

I have a dual zone heating system and is so hot in the basement that I have it turned off there and all the vents closed. The main floor is heated to 68 and the furnace is constantly running for that level. Is there a problem or is this normal?

I believe that how your house is built and your location this would be considered normal since there no one usually used the mechanical room.

yes a basement will always be colder because it has the naturally cold ground surounding it and heat rises another factor is all the cement holding in the cold
