I am wondering if it will slow down my site if not deleted.

The site speed is only affected by the stuff that it actually uses. Unused themes can just sit there without doing any harm. You should still update them (when there's an update) to keep your site secure.

Yes, you can delete not used themes, unless you have a child theme of the original
per example, I have for one of my websites the child theme lifestyle - of the parent theme Omega, then you keep both themes

Thanks, LunaVC. I would like to know this answer too. I am ready to change a theme. I guess we need to ask Kyle.

You are Welcome! I changed my Theme already and I don't think I should keep them both. I just want to be certain. These guys will know I might get a few more answers. Just look out for the answers.
Blessings!

No, you can keep it in case you want it later. Each site you create will allow you to keep a number of themes in case you decide to change it up. They will all be available under appearance-themes in your dashboard. Hope this helps, cheers :-)

I would delete it, because having more than 1 theme installed, could cause security issues
