Default Block heater question

I have the factory block heater on my WRX. How long should I leave it on? Does it have it's own thermostat?

thanks

I've read that there is no need to run the block heater for more than an hour but I think that is too conservative.

I have the extension cord to my block heater connected to an heavy-duty timer so it turns-on about 2 hours before I leave in the morning.

I don't think the block heater has a thermostat. I wouldn't worry about the engine getting too hot since I doubt the block heater can heat the engine all the way to normal operating temperature.
