Unless you have a 1.6 petrol I wouldn't have thought you would have noticed any affect on performance.Our 1.9dci 120bhp sdoesn't appear to be affected in any way, even with a fully loaded car.

It sounds like you have a problem,the "noise" you explain isn't normal - there is probably a large unecessary load being applied to the engine due to a faulty compressor unit.
If the car runs and accelerates normally with the air con off then that rules out any other elctronic engine fault.
