To what? Sliding on the floor? Less friction on your cable elevators?
It will reduce noise to all your gear which in turn will make all your gear more tranperent and a bit more true to the source.
Except it won't. I have investigated this, and teflon insulation has benefits in some contexts, but not for speaker cables or interconnects.
For example, when I worked on air defense radars in the Army 100% of all inter-chassis wiring was OFC fine-stranded silver plated wire with 100% teflon insulation. The inter-chassis wiring harnesses had maybe 50 wires and shielded cables in each bundle that was about 12 feet long. They still failed in service. They were non-returnable items and I was the only person in the unit who even had a clue what they were. For the next 20 years, they were used in any number of audio projects. They were lovely to work with but they added nothing sonically.
If the power cords and cables add Teflon and etc it will make a difference.

Will it change sound quality? No.
Will it reduce noise? No. It might even make things worse.
How do I know this?
Science and years of practical experience.
If you have some good reason to think otherwise, please post it!
I can tell you that is a fact.
Back in '07 I decided to setup my custom speakers in another room for stereo TT & CD use.
I did not have long enough lengths of speaker cable. So I went over to RS and the only small rolls they had were Monster Cable.
On the package it stated that the cable had a dielectric running up the middle that "improved HF".
That cable made the HF sound edgy and harsh, I could not stand it. Right then and there, I ordered some 12 ga from BJC. When it showed up two days later, and connected, the HF sound was back to what it was for ever...great.
So I can not say I've heard an improvement in sound from changing cables...but I have heard the sound degrade from poor quality cables.
