Should I upgrade iMac OS to speed it up?

My late 2009 iMac running OS Yosemite 10.10.5 is very slow. Would updating the OS make it faster, or slow it down even more? Thanks.

Possibly not. I upgraded through El Capitan to High Sierra and found that my speed actually went down, not by much and not enough to make a difference, but that was on a then top spec 5K iMac, 4Ghz and 24Mb memory
