Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to decrease the bitter point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is exceptionally laborious.

Keep in mind, you never want to pour antifreeze or water by themselves into your engine system. They need to be combined to create the honorable coolant.
