Definitely don't heat more. A dehumidifier will solve it but prevention is better that cure.
I would agree donít heat more if the house is adequately heated in the first place but an overnight temperature of 14c isnít enough. Ideally in winter the house shouldnít go much below 18, which is the minimum comfortable daytime temperature - and as even heating is more effective than letting it veer up and down itís best kept nearer to that anyway.

As neither kitchen nor bathroom have active extraction, prevention would start with installing some, which would be a fair bit more expensive than even a fairly hefty dehumidifier. We spent a little over £200 on ours but it really did get results very quickly.
