You must have separate feedeer ducts; one feeding the downstairs and another feeding the upstairs both from a common point such as the furnace. You also require a valve/deflector that can move to adjust the amount of air going to each feeder duct.
You require a controller with 2 thermostats and a deflection valve installed in the ductwork that will direct the airflow proportionally to the downstairs and upstairs ducts.
This is not a cheap installation and must be done by a company that has people who know what the are doing.
You can attempt to balance your system with the register vanes but this has to be done often as the weather conditions (Humidity, Temperature, Wind) will change the way your conditioned air is distributed.Source(s): 40 plus years certified electrician - worked on such systems.
