PLEASE don't do this unless someone very very knowledgeable tells you to do it. The house I recently bought had, at one time, antifreeze in the system. Not only did the home inspector warn me of its corrosiveness, but none of the local oil companies would give me furnace insurance. Once you put it in there it can't be gotten completely out.
