What if I use propane or butane instead of freon? Any bits containing
gas can be installed outside.

one outside.

            But the pressure drops at the orifice and that
is where it working fluid is coldest, so moisture will
freeze, but others mentioned how to get it out
without a vacuum pump.

Sure, but it doesn't have to contain the working gas. I imagine
that this heat pump could be used as a kind of water heater and
the heated water circulated through whatever kind of radiator
inside is preferred.

I can blow the warm air in from the outside.

Useful bit of info that I didn't know before, thanks.
I think using propane/butane it should be simpler to get any moisture

           Will that really help, if the radiator springs
a leak, won't the gas be blown in with the warm air?

           But many different gases have been used
in early units, some were quite toxic.
