You only want one h1 title on any given page...so take the primary keyword that your targeting and have it present in the h1 title...the current h1 titles you have should be converted to h2 titles. The reason I suggest this is because search engines regard h1 titles as being more important than h2, h2 more so than h3, and so on...but the more h1 titles you have on a given page, the less authority and value that h1 presents...
Now, while h1 titles are only a fraction of the picture if all on-page seo components are implemented correctly it can and will help rankings...
hopefully that answers your question...
EDIT: This is purely from an SEO standpoint and may or may not be easy to implement in WP.
HI.. I would always recommend your main keyword being there in every article heading. Using H1 tag has quite a bit of importance and you would not want to let go of it.
Correct me if am wrong, but if you add the H2 tag in the article page instead of the H1, it would appear the same on the article page and the home page. I'm not sure if you can make the headings appear in H1 on one page, and H2 in the home page. I might be wrong though, CSS might help.
I changed one of my blogs recently to have a H1 tag for the blog title and H2 tags for each post title on the main page and a H2 tag for the blog title and a H1 tag for the post title on the post page.
It can be done easily with a few changes in single.php and stylesheet.css.
you should be able to change the tags around the title in the single post file and whichever one is for the home page (main index template?)
you might need to add a "class" in the stylesheet too to make the appearance the same but change the value of the H tag
