It's really your call, if it helps you sleep better at night then by all means, but just giving personal experience that I have had a ton of them that are off on their settings and have never had a related problem.

Without something to move the water in your aquarium your heater will heat it's own space and not the entire system.

Untrue, a little something called convection. Hot water will rise, causing it to be replaced by cooler water, which will then be heated, will then rise and be replaced again by cooler water; rinse and repeat.

IMO convection is slow. With a air stone or a power head the heated water will be moved through out the entire aquarium.
