two thermostats, two units, is this ideal thermostat placement?

Hello everyone,
Not sure if this is the right sub-forum so mods feel free to move if need be.
My house (around 2500 sq/ft, one story) has two electric heat pumps / central air conditioning units and two thermostats. One thermostat controls one unit and the other controls the other unit. They are set up to basically split the house down the middle longways. One thermostat is mounted in the hallway which is logical and fairly central to the house but the other thermostat is mounted in a back bedroom which works but is kind of inconvenient. I also notice somewhat uneven heating and I am guessing it is due to the 'inconvenient' thermostat sending signals from an unused back bedroom instead of a central spot maybe?
Would it make sense to relcoate the 'inconvenient' thermostat to the hallway too or should I just leave it there? Is there something else to consider in this project I am overlooking? Thanks for any input or thoughts.

You could go with a wireless thermostat for the inconvenient one and then test locations before deciding on a permenant location.
