The E-61 on this unit has built in heating elements which help regulate temperature and will produce heat, but the temperature of the E-61 is also going to partially depend on where the pressurestat for the boiler is set. The pressurestat controls boiler temperature and how much steam pressure is produced. In general the E-61 on this machine will be around 190-200 degrees depending on where the pressurestat is set to. The machine will radiate some heat, but you would have to be fairly close to it to feel the heat being radiated. The uses 1400W of power draw. Unfortunately I do not have information on average power consumption, but when the heating element is active, it will draw 1400W of power.
