If you are talking about the large copper pipe, you wrap it in insulation. You can get it at Home Depot or Lowes.

Should you leave an air conditioner spitting water on or off?

An air conditioner that is spitting probably has a blockage in its drainage. Because colder air cannot hold as much water as warmer air, air conditioning causes water to condense out of the air. Algae thrives in the drainage of the condensation, and a colony of algae can grow to the point that the drainage is blocked. To prevent that, pour a cup of bleach into the drainage every month or two. If the condensation drains through a tube or pipe, such a blockage can be easily blown out (just don't touch your lips directly to the tube or pipe).

When your air is running you are getting water on the floor under the furnace what should you do?

Investigate the way in which condensation is being moved away from the heat exchange. Air conditioning dehumidifies the air as it cools it. The moisture from the process needs to go someplace. Usually there is a pipe that takes it to a sump pump or drain. This could be clogged. Or if it wasn't installed with a drain, you may need to install a condensation pump.
