What is the difference between “going home” and "going to home?"

In English, meaning and grammatical are different; though, both go hand in hand.
You can be understood even if the grammar is incorrect, but why would you speak like that in presence of a better option?
The meaning of these two sentences can be understood though the grammar is different.

  1. I’m going home.
  2. I’m going to home.

Do not use the preposition ‘to’ before the word ‘home’ because in this sentence ‘home’ acts as a adverb.
However, it does not mean that you can not use ‘to’ in the sentences like this. We have many exceptions in English.

We don’t use “to" before a Noun when a Noun is used as an Adverb.
