Most customers report not noticing any difference in comfort when Load Management is connected to their home. For example, your water heater may be cycled off during the late afternoon (3 pm to 6 pm), but again only on high load days. So it may only be turned off a few dozen times during the summer and winter. And most people are not using the water heater (taking showers or washing clothes in hot water) during the 3 pm to 6 pm time period. And most water heaters retain heat for some time after the power is off, so even if you take a shower, the water should still be hot.
