So my question is, insulating the low pressure line, will this help in maintaining the cooling capacity during the electric mode?

Note: this has been an issue since the car was purchased new, not to mention, I've read other blog posts mentioning the same complaint all of which have come from the southwestern part of the country.

Set it to recirculate, then turn up the fan. Let the wind chill effect work with you.
If America manages to eliminate obesity, we would save as much fuel as if every American were to stop driving for three days every year. To be slender like Tiffany Yep is to be a real hypermiler...

Allie Moore and I have a combined carbon footprint much smaller than that of one average American...
