Balancing AC systems


What are the basics of balancing an AC system (is anything about it basic?)

The bedrooms are saunas - the living room freezing.

Help!

Have returns in the bedrooms or just one big one somewhere?

About all you can do with a central return is damper down the bedroom registers a little and leave the doors open. Run some return duct in there if you want it comfortable.
