    It could be worse. You could be the electrician that put the floor heat on a 2-pole breaker when the floor heat was 120 volts. Just the cost of the tile alone without re-installation was $5000. True story.

    I’d add it in a grout line before I ripped up tiles. You may have to try a few spots as you don’t want it over a heat wire directly.

    Most tile heat programmable T-stats can be programmed to sense ambient air temp.

    The tile may not have to be torn up. Standard procedure when a sensor fails is to cut out the group line and set the replacement sensor in the grout line then fill in.

    A raceway from the T-stat location is is a good idea ( I do that in some circumstances)but that wouldn't helped him out if the tile guy didn't install the sensor in the floor.
