    The correct phrase is "I am going home". It's one of those little quirks (strange things) about English. Whenever we go anywhere else, we go "to" that place.

    I'm going to work.
    I'm going to bed.
    I'm going to my aunt's house.
    I'm going to (the) hospital.

    The only explanation I can come up with as that "home" isn't an actual, physical place - it's more of an idea!

    I'm going to my house.
    I'm going to my flat/apartment.
    I'm going to my tent.

    Those are all the actual common nouns for a type of building where one might live. They can all be described but a "home" is more of an idea, a feeling. It's that you consider the building where you live.
