Beginner Not using octave key

I stop using the octave key on my soprano ever since i bought it eight months ago. It plays well and sounds good without hitting the octave key.

The reason why i am not using it is because it is too noisy.... it gives spitting sound or "air" sound sometimes. It sounds much better without using it.

I don't find hitting the octave key helps me on high notes at all ...

Wonder if there is any "side effect" for not using the octave key??? :confused:
