With a properly sized water heater, postponing the reheat cycle should never be noticed. Most heaters can provide hot water for at least four hours after power has been turned “off”. Load management periods are shorter than this and would occur only a few times each month.
If you are a volunteer and you know that you will be using an unusually large volume of hot water–for example, you are going to have a house full of company–you may call our office and we will take your water heater off the cycle program for that period of time. We do not want this program to inconvenience you in any way.
