One burst pipe can have disastrous consequences. If you are going to be away, or just out for a short period, it is advisable to leave central heating on a low, or Frost Stat setting to avoid frozen and burst pipes. If your property is unattended please make sure all taps are turned off, remove bath and basin plugs and all stoppers - so any waste outlet is not restricted.
