Wheel changes between 25mm and 24mm wide rims? Painful?

Hi, first post and not weight specific but this always comes across as the most sensible forum. And just to be up front with you all, I might be over thinking this to avoid real life...
Well, I am planning on getting some farsport 50mm or 60mm, 25mm wide carbon clinchers for TTs and general posing. I could also do with some more reliable main alloy road/cx wheels.
So, i want to plan my wheels properly to cut down on the faff of wheel changes. I would be riding the carbon wheels for evening 10s and some weekends so at least twice a week. Brake pads changes I can hopefully put up with, but different rim widths and adjusting the cable length is not happening especially with my inaccessible rear TT brake.
There are a few 24mm wide alloy rims available, but the only 25mm wide alloy rims I can find are hed belgium plus and they are pretty expensive.
So my question is, would changing between 25mm and 24mm rims require much adjustment if any? Do you think I would be better off/happier with all 25mm wide wheels?

Thank you :D

Easy, just give the barrel adjust a turn or two and you're good to go!

Swapping brake pads can be a PITA however...

My wheelsets are all alloy brake surfaces so I don't have to deal with a pad swap.
