Air condition making loud noise when i turn it on

My air conditioner is making a loud screechy noise when I turn it on. Anyone have any ideas. Other than the noise it seems to work just fine. I have had the vehicle for a little over a year now and have never had any issues. Any ideas??

Screeching noise could be belt squeal meaning compressor is binding up meaning it's on its way out

Just a thought

Could be the tensioner pulley going bad under a load i.e. ac......just a thought. He could be right on the ac however it may be the pulley for the ac compressor instead of the ac itself. Get wd40 and start by sprating the tensioner pulley then spray the pulley of the ac. Dont actually spray the pulley or the belt would probably greet u with a slap to the face. Apply lube to the bolt area or rather the bearing cover to atleast rule out one of many pulleys that may squeal under load.
