I just brought a pressure fermenter from The Malt Miller, and as I'm using it in my "shed" - and its cold here in South England, do I need to heat the barrel?

The yeast has kicked off. The pressure has been held back, finally to about 8 psi......... using a spundy that came in the kit.

My question is, do I need to heat it to about 22 degrees C?
 
When pressure fermenting the yeast 'can' cope with higher than ideal temperature but you still need to be at least at the lowest operational range for the yeast as advised by the manufacturer.
