Daily Chess Improvement: To Sac or Not to Sac?

It is white to move in this position!

So the key question is should white sacrifice on g6? Is it sound or not? How should white proceed?

Yes is totally worth it to open the G and the H file. Checkmate is coming soon, making the Bishop active, and the other Rook as well. The white Knight does not need to jump. There is one checkmate: Rxg6+ hxg6
Qxg6+ Kh8 Qh6+ Kg8 Bh3 Rf5
Rg1+ Qh5 Rxg5+ Rxg5 Bxe6#

Engine used!
