Our last house was a split level with a fairly open floor plan, and we originally had problems with a temperature gradient like you are describing. When our HVAC died, we replaced the whole thing and upgraded the thermostat to a unit that provided much better control over the air handler. Long story short, it would turn on the air handler periodically (without AC or heat) just to mix the air in the house. That way, the air is a more uniform temperature, so you don't have "hot" air to collect at the ceiling and "cold" air to collect at the floor. The air is a more uniform temperature all-together.
I don't know if running the HVAC blower is an option for you.
Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!
