Question about the dual wood/oil oven

I am approaching a house that has a wood oven and an oil oven in the basement (separate units), but they are vented into the same duct. Understandably insurance doesn’t cover, so it looks like we’ll have to pull the plug on the wood-fired oven and rely mostly on oil for now… bummer. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Hoping to add back a wood oven as a source of systemic heat. Our options seem to be adding a second fireplace (not ideal) or getting a dual oil/wood oven unit to replace both. The oil furnace is very old so it may need to be replaced in the relatively near future, but it works for now. Has anyone had experience with these dual oil/wood oven units? Any specific brand recommendations? Horror stories? I’ve been poking around online but nothing really stands out so I’m hoping for some personal accounts and/or recommendations. I’m also hoping for something that works on wood passively, in case the power goes out. We are open to adding things like a heat pump or wood stove for the room in the future, but we really want to have that wood stove option to efficiently heat the whole house. For additional information, the house is <1000 square feet and a fairly open floor concept. Any tips on how to achieve this? Thanks in advance!
