Simply exchanging the air between the rooms will equalize the temperatures because the air will mix. I would just cut two vents in the wall, one high and one low. Natural airflow probably won't be enough to balance the temperature, so put a fan in one or both of the vents. If you do both, point the fans in opposite directions. Again, it doesn't really ...

I am not aware of any professional products for this, but you could get an arduino or rasberry pi device with two temperature sensors, and hook it up to a bi-directional fan and write some code to have it automatically start at a certain temperature difference.

2 years later... ecobee thermostats do this nowadays. A Nest and Honeywell's Lyric probably do, also. If you already have one of these systems, a probe can be run to monitor something critical, hooking to an auxiliary port on the thermostat. It will alert you to changes from a scale you've predetermined. The OP didn't seem all that hot to trot spending $100 ...

Here's a dead-simple idea: use a PTAC unit to air condition the room with excess heat, and dump it into the adjacent room. That's the general idea behind how companies with huge server rooms recycle heat during wintertime. Their systems are much more sophisticated, of course, inevitably involving heat exchangers, water cooling, thermostats, multiple zones ...

I would recommend first contacting a home energy efficiency company first rather than an HVAC company. HVAC guys are usually clueless about systemic problems like these and will usually try to sell you a larger unit without diagnosing the true cause of the issue (which is a pain in the neck and can probably be fixed for much less than the cost of new ...

If you're not going to do the work yourself, you could contact any local Heating & Air Conditioning company (HVAC). They will be able to find and repair any problems with the system. As for zoning, it's definitely possible. How easily it can be done; and to what degree, completely depends on your house, and how willing you are to potentially open up ...
