Intermittent buzzing sound from mulitple sources

I just moved into a new house. We've noticed a buzzing sound that comes and goes every couple seconds. It's a rather annoying sound that sounds like a cricket is stuck in the house. It started coming from the ceiling fans. Every ceiling fan in the house makes the noise. We've also noticed it coming from outlets when we have something plugged into it, i.e. computer, tv, dvr, golf cart charger. Anyone have any ideas?

It is caused by loose connections. If the house was pre-1980s, it may have aluminum wiring. Start by checking all connections, remake any wirenut connections and move any backstabs to the screws.
