Can the interest/payment on a home equity loan be deducted as home office expense, the same a home mortgage ?

I have been asked to set a home office for my employer’s benefit. I will work from home on daily basis. I know I can deduct a portion of my mortgage payment and utlilties from my taxes, but can I deducted my home equity loan payments? Should I consolidate both loans to get the total tax benefit?
