Hey there Jessica,
Yeah it sounds like you need to have that sound looked into. A pulley, a fan clutch, the compressor, the belt.... the list goes on and on. Cant tell you what it is or what its going to cost with out checking out what happened. Once you get the diagnosis, this website www.repairpal.com quotes "ball park" prices. Not always exact, but I have found it to be fairly accurate. On the bright side, at least you lost the a/c after the heat of the summer.

See a qualified mechanic to check your vehicle

Without seeing the vehicle it would be hard to tell. It*s possible that your compressor bearing went and this is the noise you*re hearing.
If that*s the case, compressors can be expensive. Depending on what went wrong, you may need to replace some other a/c parts as well because of contamination. Get a technician to give you a diagnosis and then you can shop around for the best price to fix it.
Unfortunately a/c repairs can become costly. If you have a newer vehicle you may still have a warranty.
Hope this helps.

To me it sounds like you are talking about the blower motor. I would ask if the a/c is blowing air and if it
