    Does a setback termostat save money with Steam

    I have an older steam system which takes a while to get up to temp. I installed a new digital setback thermostat last year and I am not sure if it is saving me money as the time it takes to get from 65 to 68 in the morning is quite long. Am i better off just keeping it set at 68 and not setting it back at night? Someone is home during the day, so no chance to set it back and potentially save money there.
