If i refuse to talk to the police in my own house can they arrest me?

Simply refusing to talk is your Miranda right. Can only arrest if they had a warrant, anyway. My neighbor, Stan B_______, refused to talk to cops, told them go away. .Nothing happened.
Note, that we don't Know All the Particulars. Why were cops taking to you? Barking dog? Information on druggie neighbor? Just cops Being there means absolutely Nothing it itself .Maybe, Wrong House?

They can't arrest you for refusing to talk to them. But if they have come to talk to you. They probably already have sufficient evidence to arrest you. Be polite and courteous and tell the police officer I always have my lawyer present during questioning by the police. If they arrest you they arrest you if they don't they don't.

You are never under any obligation to speak to the police, so that is not an issue.
If they have probable cause and/or a warrant, they can arrest you anywhere.

In the US, they can't arrest you anywhere for refusing to talk.
If they have grounds to arrest you, being at your home only means they need a warrant to enter without your consent. They can call for a warrant from your front door.

It depends on what they want to talk to you about.

Of course they can - location is irrelevant

No the can not. But still it always best to cooperate with law enforcement.

If you're obstructing them from investigating a crime, absolutely.
