Sounds like a heater core to me. Not very expensive, but not a whole lot of fun to change out. But not bad.

You may have a clogged heater box drain. It's a little rubber flap in the bottom of the box. If it's blocked the rainwater will accumulate inside the box. It's pretty much hidden from view unless you remove the plastic inner fender well. If you remove the blower motor and get a flashlight down inside you can check it.
Here is what it looks like from the outside on an AC box.
This is what it looks like on a non-AC box.
