Keeping water temp during water changes

Hey everyone! I have a question. Winter is approaching and I have my tank at 26C. I do one 100% water change a week (aside for a 50%). When doing the 100%, I put my betta in a container, in which he has about 1.5 liters of water to swim during the time I clean the tank. My question is, how can I keep the temp of the water in the container? Because now the room temp is getting lower than the water temp. Thanks!

i put mine in a six-pack sized plastic cooler.i warm it up by putting warm water in it and letting it sit a few minutes.then i pour the water out and put my containered betta in and close the top.i have a couple of coolers for i use for water changes.the other i use to pick up fish from the lfs or move them.this is awsome for minnesota winters.keeps them warm and in the dark to reduce stress.easy to steralize also.

I assume you catch him up in a cup. You can prepare a large (>1gal) bowl of water at the right temperature. Float his cup in there.
