insultated block heater ???

Anyone ever considered or tried some sort of insulation around or near the block heater ?

I'm sure there are various factors to consider and/or that might rule this out. Tried searching, came up empty. Toughts/?

thanks for dropping the f-bomb.

the heaters were installed by ford good reason, not interested in debating use/need for the heaters

my post/question was whether anyone had considered doing some sort of insulating to make the them more efficient (thus requiring less time plugged in to achieve same result)

3 hours is all you need. The cast black does a pretty good job of insulating the coolant
