Umm, every Premium package or higher Subaru since at least MY2005 comes with a winter package which includes windshield de-icer. The blades sit on top of heated coils. If you have heated mirrors/seats then you probably have this too. Look at your windshield for what looks like a computer mother board. Turn on your rear defroster and it all turns on.
Also, when you park your car and know it will be icey or snow, take your blades and put them up in the air so they don't stick.
