Hi,guys, long time no see.
Here is the question.

On the way home at night, for example, the owners can switch on the lights or ________ (63) the central heating working, and so make sure that they have a nice warm welcome when they step into their home.
63. A. lead B. have C. put D. get

I think both have and get is right. But I have to choose one. So I would like to know the difference between "have sth doing" and "get something doing".
Looking forward to your answers!
Thanks!

    Sorry, I'm confused, too. Although I can't tell the difference between them, I'll probably choose get.

    The answer is D - get.
    B does not work for me because 'have' is a continuous state and you need an action verb here.
