    Hi,

    I was just thinking the other day about what the temperature is of the household electrical line. I tried looking it up on google but no one seems to have posted anything about it so i would just like to know how much temperature does the electrical line have in the average household? You know, inside the power points.

    It shouldn't be more than a few degrees above ambient room temperature, but depends how much current you are drawing from the power point, and whether or not the power point wiring complies with the local code regarding wire gauge.
