Block heaters

Just curious how much I would benefit from a block heater. I live in NJ. I drive a 2006 Scion XB. On cold /winter days my car takes for ever to warm up. Where do I look for one and, how much should it cost and where could i have it installed?

Thanks in advance for any help!

They are cheap 30-40 $ MAX installed. Everywhere they can sell you when (car shop...). And your car will started MUCH MORE easily, and 3-4 minutes and the engine will be warmth (depends of the wheater).

And here is a good thread on the subject, I'm sure you will find everythings you want on it, I posted myself some good info, because Im kind of informed on the subject since I lived in Quebec (Canada) and the winter are really cold (-20 degrees!). But I do loooove winter, just need to get used to it, and not to live in cities, because if so, the are kind of a pain in the ***.
