When Replacing Gas Water Heater, Does It Have to Be the Same Size?

No, it does not . Just get a 40-ish gallon heater, likely to be more efficient and with a faster recovery time than your old unit. To some extent, one can size the heater on the size of the house. And I suspect you will be looking for a bigger house! As the kids get in their teen years, the water use can go nuts, as each can blow off like twice "normal" hot water use rates, whether from long showers, or giant laundry work, from like four towels a day, 'each. (Hint: Check your dryer lint filter constantly and discharge flue monthly.) If you have the money, take a look at high-efficiency heaters at any size. There is a difference in operating costs. Others will differ, but I would also avoid on-demand electric units, which have not worked out that well.

If no longer after a pair cases of this, you may replace the valve. If the home is newly built, touch your contractor or the seller

Replace the thermocouple. That is the small tip that the pilot light burns on. When you light the pilot light the thermocouple warms up and opens a valve that keeps gas flowing to the pilot light.
