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.

Again, the only place insulation will help is after the expansion valve and before the evaporator. This likely already has insulation or is so short as to not matter.
