The installation of a split-type air-conditioner wraps both sunction line and liquid line together using one single insulation, instead of wraping each line separately. Is there any significant loss of cooling efficiency to do so?

[EDIT2: This type of installation is very common in my city and they even wrap the electric wires inside the insulator too.]

I have not seen this done. I thought the return suction line was supposed to be cold to help cool the compressor. There is no need to wrap the high pressure liquid line at all.
