Central A/c is cooling, but water is leaking on the floor instead of coming out of drain pipe ?

MY Central A/C is cooling fine. I have gas air furnance.
Before water would drain thru the drain pipe. Last week I notice water is not coming out of drain pipe, instead water is leaking on the floor inside & outside of furnance.
Is this water will damage Heating unit ?
How difficult it is to fix leaking water from A/C

Water finds its way to the point of least resistance. It appears that your condensate drain is no longer that point. The humidity from your home is being condensed to water but that water has no where to go. You will need to clear your condensate drain line - using a little lung power may work to blow out the debris and sediment within the line. Take the front panel off of your furnace to train the line back to its origin. Check to see if the pipe fightings are tight as this may also be where the leak is from. My best guess and a very common issue is that the line is blocked and it is forcing the condensed water back into the system - allowing it to show up on the floor, etc. I linked in some additional info below!

i would check your air filter, could be creating too much resistance and causing freezing.
