Set a timer!
If you do put the heating on then setting a timer is important because it will help you control how expensive your energy bills are. Having the heating on a lower heat for a longer time often costs less than sudden bursts, so if it's cold then you should set the heating to come on earlier, rather than turning up the thermostat to warm up the house rapidly.
