Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to decrease the bitter point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely exciting. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the preeminent ingredient in the popular term "antifreeze".
