After going through the process of how to best renew certificates for Quassel, one of the devs pointed out to me that Quassel reloads config without terminating when it receives SIGHUP.

This is actually incredibly helpful and I think that this should be added to the unit file:

ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
This task depends upon
