Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Public Service Commission is offering tips to consumers on how to reduce home heating costs.

The tips are listed in a new section on the PSC's web site called "A Consumer's Guide To Lower Heating Bills."

They include reversing ceiling fan motors so the blades push air toward the ceiling, where warm air normally rises, and setting hot water temperatures to between 110 degrees and 120 degrees.

The web site,, also provides an explanation of the charges on a typical gas utility bill, and links to a home energy audit and public and private resources for possible payment assistance.

    I found this site which gave some ways and programs that help save on all bills, including heating and utility bills. Help is provided both from the gov't and utility companies themselves.
