Assuming your iMac is "new" enough to run Mavericks…yes…having only 13gigs available probably is the problem.

And even if 13gig free was enough…after the Mavericks install the HD would be so full…your Mac wouldn't run well any way. Then you would potentially be blaming the slow perfomrnace on the Mavericks install…instead of the full HD (we get this sort of mis-diagosis all the time).

Basically we recommend not allowing an HD to get more than 80-85% full to maintain good performance. I'm afraid you're well beyond that already.
