A cover for a tank would probably help a bit.
My first betta lived for 3 years in a covered tank that was probably 2 or 3 gallons. My second one died within a few days because I had an open bowl, and the water was freezing. I just got my third one, and I put him in the bowl for a day or so. He was very in-active, and was not eating. I switched him into my communtity tank, and he is doing a lot better.
For future use, get a covered tank, and make sure the water does not fall below 75 degrees.
